In this episode of Defence Connect Insight Podcast, the US embassy’s Marine Attaché, Mark Weinrich, delves into rapidly evolving relationship between the US Marines and the Australian Defence Force.
Weinrich joins host Steve Kuper to also discuss his career from piloting an EA-6B Prowler, to working with the UK Royal Marines Commandos and his transition to supporting the Marine Rotational Force-Darwin (MRF-D).
Tune in to this episode to hear about the current training projects being undertaken by MRF-D, how the Corps are adapting to advances in technology and responding to adversaries capabilities, and how the Commandant’s Planning Guidance provides young marines with the opportunity to instigate change.
