31st MEU conducts Mark VI, CCM refueling operation

U.S. Marines with Combat Logistics Battalion 31, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) and U.S. Sailors with Naval Special Warfare Special Boat Team 12, test expeditionary refueling capabilities with a combatant craft medium boat during a refueling operation on the pier of U.S. Naval Base Guam, Feb. 21, 2021. Refueling in port is a proof-of-concept exercise that demonstrates the ability to get fuel from a non-traditional expeditionary support platform, allowing for an extended sustainment while at sea. The 31st MEU is operating aboard ships of the Amphibious Squadron 11 in the 7th fleet area of operations to enhance interoperability with allies and partners and serve as a ready response force to defend peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region.

Wow.  From a first entry, door kicking force to being a support element to the fleet, SOCOM and allies.

We're not even perimeter security!  Logistics wins wars but to become uniformed UPS and Shell Gas Stations?

Just plain wow.

The New Marine Corps!
