5:55 p.m. — More than 300 Marines from the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit will hold training exercises on Guam through Feb. 5, according to a press release.

The Marines will be performing a variety of training exercises, including patrolling exercises, marksmanship training, a simulated helicopter raid, a parachute operation and a landing support party, said 1st Lt. Jaymie Sicking, Public Affairs Officer for the expeditionary unit.

Once the training is complete, the Marines will be given three to four days of liberty to rest and see the island.

“We’re really glad to be here and it’s a great opportunity for our Marines to get some historical and cultural training from this island that has so much of our history,” Sicking said.
