UNITAS: Recon Closing Ceremony
Infantería de Marina Colombiana (Colombian Marine Corps) Teniente Coronel (Lieutenant Colonel) Carlos Andres Rodriguez Saenz, commander of Caribbean Naval Special Forces Group, left, hands a letter of appreciation to a U.S. Marine with 4th Reconnaissance Battalion, 4th Marine Division, at the closing ceremony for special operations training during UNITAS LXIV at Cartagena, Colombia, July 20, 2023. During UNITAS, reconnaissance and special operation force Marines from partner and allied nations conducted multilateral special operations training consisting of room clearing, visit board search and seizure, jungle patrolling, low level static line jumping, small arms, and helicopter rope suspension tactics. UNITAS, hosted by Colombia this year, is the world’s longest-running annual multinational maritime exercise that focuses on enhancing interoperability among multiple nations and joint forces during littoral and amphibious operations in order to build on existing regional partnerships and create new enduring relationships that promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the U.S. Southern Command’s area of responsibility.
