Marine division sent to Australia to increase Asia security

A division of U.S. Marines has been sent to Darwin, Australia, as part of a 25-year program to increase focus on Asia security.

The program, started by President Obama and fully supported by President Trump, calls for joint training maneuvers with the Marines and the Australian Defense Force.

The relevance of the mission has never been higher, with North Korea testing missiles and the United States issuing warnings.

Australia has long been a strong military ally, sending troops to fight in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
