BRADSHAW FIELD TRAINING AREA, Australia - Marines with Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Marine Rotational Force - Darwin, ride in an MV-22B Osprey to a movement-to-contact training evolution during Exercise Koolendong, here, Sept. 3. MRF-D Marines traveled to the range either by foot, vehicle or aircraft. This training evolution is the first of its kind, here, in which Marines with MRF-D and the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit worked bilaterally with the Australian soldiers of Bravo Company, 5th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment as a "proof of concept" to assess the capacity of the training ranges to support a battalion-sized live-fire event.
