SULU, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Oct. 09, 2007) – At least 40 Filipino Marines attended a three-day seminar on Air-To-Ground Operations in Sulu province in southern Philippines.

The Philippine forward air controllers, assigned to the Philippine Air Force Mobile Training Team, provided the seminar for the battle-hardened soldiers, who belong to the 3rd and 11th Marine Battalion Landing Teams held in Tanduh Bato from October 4 to 6.

The seminar is designed to improve the Marines inter-operability with the Air Force. This covers close air support, heli-borne assault, communications link-up, marshalling aircraft for medical evacuation and other air support operations.

“The Brigade conceptualized this enhancement training in order to improve our capability in combat. This is to ensure that whenever we request air support, our men in the field are correctly communicating with our P.A.F. counterparts,” Lt. Col. Antonieto Ga, 2nd MBLT deputy commander, said in a statement released on Monday.
