US & Philippine Marines – Live Fire

Gunnery Live Fire Range

U.S. and Philippine Marines conduct a section gunnery live fire range during KAMANDAG 3 at Colonel Ernesto P. Ravina Air Base, Philippines, Oct. 14, 2019.


As treaty allies, U.S.-Philippine and U.S.- Japanese military collaboration has served as a cornerstone for stability in the Indo-Pacific region for decades, and the U.S. has a continuing commitment in strengthening our longstanding alliances, reinforcing our maritime security efforts, and addressing our shared extremist threat.


KAMANDAG is an acronym for the Filipino phrase “Kaagapay Ng Mga Manirigma Ng Dagat,” which translates to “Cooperation of the Warriors of the Sea,” highlighting the partnership between the U.S. and Philippine militaries.
