TELUK GOREK BEACH, MALAYSIA
A U.S. Marine shaves excess material from a vine as part of a jungle survival course June 2 during Exercise Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training 2014 at Teluk Gorek Beach, Malaysia. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Exercise CARAT series, and the Malaysian Armed Forces have partnered with the U.S. since 1995. The continued relevance of CARAT Malaysia speaks to the longstanding partnership and contributions from generations of military professionals who have trained side by side in previous exercises. The Marine is with 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, currently assigned to 4th Marines, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force, under the unit deployment program.
