US Marines and JGSDF conduct Helocast Training

U.S. Marines with Force Reconnaissance Company, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion and Japan Ground Self-Defense Force soldiers with Reconnaissance Company, Amphibious Rapid Deployment Brigade, participate in helocast training during Exercise Iron Fist on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, Jan. 22. Helocasting is an airborne technique used by small unit, special operations forces, also practiced extensively by the US Army’s light infantry units, to insert into a military area of operations. The small unit is flown, by helicopter, to a maritime insertion point. Iron Fist is an annual, bilateral training exercise between U.S. and Japanese forces that builds their combined ability to conduct amphibious and land-based contingency operations. 02;54;19: Interview with U.S. Marine Corps Cpl.
