PUCKAPUNYAL, Australia - U.S. Marines stationed at Quantico, Va., Kaneohe Bay, HI, and Okinawa, Japan participate in the falling plate competition during the the 2011 Australian Army Skill at Arms Meeting (AASAM) May 15. The week-long meeting pits representatives from partner-nations in competition in a grueling series of combat marksmanship events. Represented nations include Canada, France (French Forces New Caledonia), Indonesia, Timor Leste, Brunei, Netherlands, US Marines, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and a contingent of Japanese observers. The AASAM is designed to pit the best soldiers against each other in a tough combat-like environment. Since 1984, AASAM has been Australia's premier military shooting tournament.
