Marines of 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion, 4th Marine Division, drive Amphibious Assault Vehicles from the amphibious transport dock ship USS Tortuga (LSD 46) during a dry run of the final training exercise (FTX) in Thailand as part of Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) 2011. CARAT is an annual series of bilateral exercises held between the U.S. and Southeast Asian nations with the goals of enhancing regional cooperation, promoting mutual trust and understanding, and increasing operational readiness with allies and partners. The FTX is a beach assault with U.S. and Royal Thai Marines and Sailors. The majority of the U.S. Marines participating in CARAT are reserve Marines who volunteered for the training. The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve is an integral element of the Total Force Marine Corps and shares the expeditionary mindset that encompasses the Marines’ culture. (Official Marine Corps Photo by Cpl.
