MARINES with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s maritime raid force conduct an enhanced visit board search and seizure training at a U.S. Coast Guard facility. The interesting thing in this video is, that the Marines use airsoft rifles & pistols for their training exercise! Enjoy watching.
Loud music is played within the facility to increase stress levels in the Marines and intensify the training. The MRF is the maritime interdiction element for the MEU, currently deployed as part of the Makin Island Amphibious Ready Group (MKIARG). The group is a U.S. Central Command theater reserve force. The group is also providing support for maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
