U.S. Marines with 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion and Philippine Marines jump out of a U.S. MV-22 Osprey during static line parachute training at Fort Magsaysay, Luzon, Philippines, Oct. 10, 2019. KAMANDAG helps participating forces maintain a high level of readiness and enhances combined military-to-military relations, interoperability, and multinational coordination. KAMANDAG 3 is a Philippine-led, bilateral exercise with participation from Japan. KAMANDAG is an acronym for the Filipino phrase “Kaagapay Ng Mga Manirigma Ng Dagat,” which translates to “Cooperation of the Warriors of the Sea,” highlighting the partnerships between the U.S. and Philippine militaries.
