MARINES PARTICIPATE IN MILITARY EXERCISES ON COMBAT CENTER

Marines and sailors from around the Marine Corps are participating in a Service Level Training Exercise at the Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms through November 25. SLTE is a series of separate exercises designed to prepare Marines for operations around the globe by increasing their ability to operate and conduct offensive and defensive combat operations. There are three sublevel training events: Integrated Training Exercise, Adversary Force Exercise, and Mountain Training Exercise. These exercises prepare US and guest armed forces for the culminating event, the Marine Air-Ground Task Force Warfighting Exercise.

AFX exposes units to cutting edge technology, tactics, techniques, and procedures to increase proficiency, unit cohesion, and adaptability in warfighting at all levels.

The Marine Warfighting Exercise pushes Marines to innovate and adapt. Service members are challenged to fight against a free-thinking adversary with similar capabilities in a force-on-force, free-play environment.
