U.S. Marines, sailors flex their amphibious muscles in Russia's backyard

U.S. Marines, sailors flex their amphibious muscles in Russia's backyard

U.S. Marines and sailors recently teamed with other NATO allies during a major show of force in Ukraine amid growing concerns about a Russian military plus-up on the Crimean border.
Troops from 16 nations completed Exercise Sea Breeze, which was held just a couple of hundred miles from the Crimean Peninsula, on July 30. U.S. military officials tout the annual air, land and maritime exercise as a way to enhance interoperability and strengthen regional security in a volatile region marked by the 2014 Russian incursion of Crimea and continuing civil war in Ukraine, which borders Russia.
