  1. I'm Lance Cpl Fernando Moreno with your Marine Minute. Earlier this week Navy Sailors endured the final exercise of the Field Medical Service Technician Course on Camp Pendleton, California. The eight week long course trains Sailors to become Fleet Marine Force Navy Corpsman more commonly known as “Doc.” Every year approximately 700 hundred Sailors graduate ready to be attached to Fleet Marine Units, both in garrison and in field environments. Some of the field training conducted during the course includes hikes, combat patrolling, and various tactical combat casualty care scenarios. And yes, they even had the opportunity to go through the gas chamber. The instructors for the courses are a mix of both Sailors and Marines. The Marine instructors provide the students with mentorship and the perspective of the fleet. Students are not only required to know their job and adhere to Naval traditions and customs, but they also need to know the rank structure, common knowledge and history of the Marine Corps. That's it for your Marine Minute, for more news around the Corps go to Marines.mil.
  2. I'm Lance Cpl Fernando Moreno with your Marine Minute. Earlier this week Marines part of the Single Marine Program on Camp Courtney and Camp Foster volunteere at one of the oldest and largest animal welfare and rescue organizations in Okinawa. The no-kill organization was started in 1997 and cares for approximatley 600 animals at its four locations across the island. According to a staff member working at Animal Garden, having limited resources makes having volunteers a significant help for the shelter raising the moral of the staff and animals alike. If there is anything that Marines are good at, it's doing more with less. With Marines on the job not only does the work get done, but the shelters visibility and potential for adoptions goes up. These volunteer activities provide great opportunities for service members to get out of the barracks, interact with their local neighbors, get behind a good cause, and provide a great service for their communities.

  4. I'm Lance Cpl Fernando Moreno with your Marine Minute. Once again Marines and Sailors based out of California will be heading to Central and South America to partake in U.S. Southern Commands Enduring Promise initiative. The command element for the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit, I Marine Expeditionary Force, will serve as the headquarters, aboard the USS Wasp. Marines and Sailors from across 1 Marine Expeditionary Force will find themselves in Latin America throughout the month of October. The Enduring promise initiative will have U.S. service members working with their Central and South American partners during several humanitarian-themed events. In December of 2018, a similar task force was formed to conduct a bilateral engagement in Peru. This time around there is a strong emphasis on building upon the previous iteration, further strengthening the partnership between our nations. Enduring Promise allows the Marine Corps and Navy to work together alongside partner nations' militaries and create a unified effort to respond to humanitarian crises and natural disasters.
