Dawn Blitz 2013 

Dawn Blitz 2013 is a two-part, scenario-driven, simulation-supported amphibious exercise designed to train Expeditionary Strike Group 3 (ESG 3) and 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade (1st MEB). The initial, synthetic scenario occurred Jan. 28-31, 2013 and the final live phase will be conducted June 11-28. Dawn Blitz provides a robust training environment where forces plan and execute an amphibious assault from a seabase in a land-and- maritime threat environment to improve naval amphibious core competencies. Dawn Blitz 2010 was the first MEB-level amphibious assault exercise the Marine Corps conducted since 2001. The core capability of MEB-level amphibious operations is essential to national defense.

This exercise is one of a series of amphibious training events on both coasts of the U.S. that take place annually. Exercises like Dawn Blitz 2013 provide realistic, relevant training necessary for effective global crisis response expected of the Navy and Marine Corps and importance of enhancing coalition partnerships and military-to-military relationships through shared training.
