Amphibious Landing Exercise 2014
Approximately 2,300 U.S. and Philippine service members will meet for three weeks of bilateral air-ground and amphibious training as well as a staff planning exercise during Amphibious Landing Exercise 2014 (PHIBLEX 14) in the Republic of the Philippines Sept. 18 - Oct. 11.
PHIBLEX 14 is designed to improve interoperability, increase readiness and enhance the ability to respond to natural disasters or other regional contingencies. PHIBLEX will also enhance local infrastructure and quality of life and build upon vibrant professional and personal relationships between Philippine and U.S. Marines.
The bilateral Philippine-U.S. Marine Corps training, consisting of a staff planning exercise, field training exercises and humanitarian and civic assistance projects, sustains and reinforces the foundation and framework for a bilateral force to respond rapidly and effectively to regional humanitarian crises.
