Joint training sessions together with US marines from the 2nd Marine Division take place several times a year in both the U.S. and in the Dutch Caribbean, Aruba Today reports. Camp Lejeune in North Carolina offers Dutch marines posted to the various islands in the Caribbean a unique opportunity to train at an advanced level with scarce enablers in, among other things, urban areas.

This unique training location enables CZMCARIB to train its units at a more advanced level than is possible at its own geographical location. Cooperation with U.S. units and the addition of enablers (helicopters, aircraft, etc.), in combination with a current and realistic scenario, creates a challenging training environment for both commanders and marines.

So, U.S. Marines with 2d Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, and Dutch Marines with 32nd Raiding Squadron Aruba, Defensie Caribisch Gebied, the St. Maarten Detachment and other units conducted live-fire and sniper training on range G-12, Camp Lejeune, N.C., on March 8, 2021. The training was a part of Exercise Caribbean Urban Warrior, a bilateral training evolution that increases interoperability between U.S. and Dutch units.
