Marines Learn to Survive in the Jungle


U.S. and Philippine Marines perform jungle survival training at Camp O’Donnell in Tarlac Province, Philippines as part of Balikatan 2013. Balikatan 2013 is an annual Philippine-U.S. bilateral exercise.

Humanitarian assistance and training activities enable the Philippine and American service members to build lasting relationships, train together and provide assistance in communities where the need is the greatest. Includes soundbites from Sgt. Bimbo Busico, Force Reconnaissance Battalion, Philippine Marine Corps; and 2nd Lt. Stephen Rondone, 3rd Supply Battalion Combat Logistics Regiment 35, USMC.
