Dawn Blitz 2015 is a scenario-driven biennial exercise designed to train the Navy and Marine Corps in operations expected of an amphibious task force. The exercise will test staffs in the planning and execution of amphibious operations in a series of live training events.
Units from U.S. Third Fleet and I Marine Expeditionary Force will utilize the latest technologies and live exercises to accomplish Dawn Blitz 2015 training objectives. The exercise will involve an amphibious assault, mine operations, live fire opportunities, and Maritime Prepositioning Force (MPF) training and seabasing operations.
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 2015 provide realistic, relevant training necessary for an effective global Navy and Marine Corps.
