ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “US Marines are a familiar sight in the Northern Territory, after 10 years in the Top End | ABC News” – below is their description.
In its 10th year of rotating through Darwin’s defence bases, the United States Marine Corps’ presence in the Top End is growing each year. They train with their Aussie counterparts, and the US government is investing millions in infrastructure to further American interests in Australia and the Pacific, but it’s rare for Australians to get a glimpse into what they actually do. The ABC joined the Marines as they worked alongside the Australian Defence Force on a humanitarian response exercise on the Tiwi Islands.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
