Alliance in Action | U.S. Marines and Australian Army Soldiers


The Americans and Aussies have a storied history of fighting alongside each other ever since World War I. And right from the start we integrate and operate on a much higher level. – Exercise Koolendong is a
multilateral live fire exercise in the combined arms setting
involving the US Marine Corps, the Australians, and
the French Armed Forces. – We have about 2,500
Marines here in Darwin, and we’ve brought about 750 to 800 of them out to Mount Bundy to do
a culminating exercise. Being a rifleman and being sacked by seeing what we have in
the present for someone that we probably won’t ever meet. We keep this together, it closes the bond that we have. – [Soldier] It’s more than
just being out on the range.

  1. Go US and Australia 🇺🇸💪❤ ! Thank you very much for your service and sacrifice ! Prayers for you and your family members ! Be safe ! 🇺🇸💪

  2. I have wanted to be in the marines all my life, but am medically disqualified due to a foreign object inside of me. So therefore I chose to still live out that dream a little by being a civil war reenactor as well as a WWII marine. You guys are just a few of the Heroes of America. Semper Fi!

  3. For a second I thought they were making a Darwinism joke because Marines run towards chaos.

    (I am a USMC 0311 infantryman)

  4. Thank you for your service, all of y'all I use to just say that and not mean it vecause I din't understand how much y'all actually do for not only me but America… Thank you for your service and Semper Fi

  5. Chris Morris on satire in the Trump era and his new film 'The Day Shall Come' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liV5wKAihh8 The FBI are creating false flags to take our guns! CIA are traffickers. BLM, EPA are taking farms for oil, USDA, FDA are poisoning us with foods and medicine. The feds are the deep state and need to hang! HANG THE FBI AND CIA! Go get em Marines!

  6. So during these live fire drills, do they have targets, or dummies that they're shooting at? I can understand the artillery side has an area to fire upon, but what about the infantry?

  7. I’m a poolee atm for the delayed entry program but.. August 20th, 2020 is the day I’m waiting for! Semper Fi 🇺🇸

  8. It behooves Australia, being an island and Commonwealth nation to stand up its own marine corps, such as the Royal Australian Marines.

  9. Love my country,U.S.M.C. are the best crack troops the United States has from men like John Basilone to Carlos Hathcock. John 15:13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. As an American civilian I just asked you to remember the oath you have sworn and the Constitution you have protected and preserved since the shores of Tripoli and even before all the way to 1775 before we were the United States of America with a constitution that guarantees no infringement on the rights to freedom of speech and freedom of press and the right to bear arms no infringement that these politicians do not understand.please do not accept any unlawful orders do your best to maintain the highest standards only the marines have and can stand for. For if there is anyone that will save our country and our constitution from the Vipers in charge in Washington DC these days it will be you Marines. May God bless the United States Marine Corps.Semper fi!

  10. "It's more than just being out on the range", anonymous Marine at end of video.
    I hope they all get to sing "Waltzing Matlida" while hoisting a pint together!

  11. Well done. Two of the finest, most professional fighting forces on the planet joining forces. Buckle up tight and hang on people because hell is coming to call.

  12. Thank God for the Marines because if the Japanese has managed to gain control of Australia in WW2 we would have been fucked

  13. Whoever is in charge of the Marines PR department. This is what you need to keep doing. The better the videos the more likely the algorithms will spread your message. You will find your recruits on youtube and online where everyone including active marines and civilians can comment and talk to each other. A lot more effective than 15 sec tv ad.

  14. Love from 'Straya to our 'Murican brethren!

    Hope to join you fellas in the home of the brave and land of the free soon… Sadly us Australians have given away nearly all of our freedom, rights and independence only to be afforded "privileges" by our government overlords.
