31st Marine Expeditionary Unit Enroute to Operation Tomodachi

05/03/2013: We recently did an interview with Commanding Officer of the 31st MEU.  And in preparation for the publication of that interview, we are posting a couple of background pieces on the 31st MEU.

The 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, embarked aboard three ships with Amphibious Squadron 11, and headed toward the coast of mainland Japan to take part in Operation Tomodachi and respond to any requests for help from the Government of Japan.
