U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific

In Any Clime and Place

Exercise Koa Moana 16.2 takes place May - August 2016 in Okinawa, Japan; Timor Leste; Papua New Guinea; Tonga; and Fiji. This year's iteration will focus on theater security cooperation events throughout those countries and enhance infantry and engineer capabilities at the platoon level, while building mil-to-mil relations and improving warfighting skills.

KM 16.2 will serve to further strengthen alliances around the Asia-Pacific region as well as highlight the effectiveness of a maritime prepositioning force (MPF).  Exercise Koa Moana, meaning Ocean Warrior, is designed to train U.S. service members and partner nations in conducting and discussing key aspects of mission readiness and interoperability to ensure security and stability of the Asia-Pacific region.
