Marines Learn Jungle Survival During Cobra Gold

8 months ago

A group of Marines got up close and personal — maybe for some a little too personal — with snakes, spiders and scorpions during a jungle survival class as part of Exercise Cobra Gold in Thailand.

Marines assigned to Battalion Landing Team 2/4, 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit joined their Thai counterparts for a jungle survival class in which they learned the necessary skills to survive in harsh, austere environments.

The class was part of Cobra Gold — an annual U.S.-Thai co-sponsored exercise that builds on the longstanding friendship between the two nations and brings together a robust multinational force to promote regional peace and security in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific.
