A Marine with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, helps Japanese locals unload a U.S. Navy landing craft here, March 27. The 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit delivered food, water, health and comfort supplies, and Japanese electrical utility vehicles to the isolated island of Oshima, in conjunction with Japanese Self-Defense Forces. The 31st MEU’s involvement is part of a larger U.S. government response, after a 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami struck Japan causing widespread damage. The 31st MEU is ready to support our Japanese partners and to provide assistance when called upon.
