Pacific Command is doing it right! 25th Infantry Division jumps into Talisman Sabre 2015! (Photo by Sgt. David Beckstrom)

ROCKHAMPTON, Australia (July 8, 2015) - Service members, from 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, parachute onto the Kapyong Air Field, Australia, in support of Exercise Talisman Sabre 15.
I talk often about what I view as "going wrong" but rarely do I talk about what's going right.  I think in the future I'll balance that out....meanwhile...


I've pounded the desk and punched walls when it comes to what I view as a NATURAL joining of forces in the Pacific.  Specifically teaming the Marine Expeditionary Unit with a permanent, forward based Army Airborne unit.

The medium weight punch of the MEUs' combined arms team (a complete combined arms team) with the super rapid deployment of airborne units make this a formidable combination.

We should be leveraging it to the fullest.  Having a Marine Expeditionary Unit hovering offshore with an Army Airborne unit an hour out is the kind of deterrent power that we need in this time of chaos.
