    The Marine Corps is known for rules limiting recruits from growing facial hair during boot camp. At its Parris Island training facility in South Carolina, most aspiring Marines are cleanly shaven and get a buzz cut soon after showing up. It’s one reason why a store there carries so many razor blades. But earlier this month, a noncommissioned Marine Corps officer and three civilians at the Beaufort County installation were accused of trying to profit off the store’s cache of grooming supplies after more than $1.5 million worth of razors and razor blades went missing. First Sgt. Lascelles Chambers, a...

A significant number of bars in downtown Reykjavík were forced to make emergency beer runs under the onslaught of thirsty American sailors and Marines in town for the start of Trident Juncture 18, Iceland Magazine reports.

    As NATO prepares for its biggest military drills in more than 10 years, elements of the U.S. Marine Corps are preparing a rehearsal amphibious landing on Iceland before performing it for real on the beaches of Norway during the upcoming Trident Juncture exercise. Some 2,000 Marines and sailors with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit embarked recently on the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship Iwo Jima and are currently headed towards NATO’s extreme north to prepare for their amphibious assault, the Marine Corps Times reported.

    Full title: Trump’s attacks on Sen. Blumenthal are actually more absurd than Blumenthal’s lies about serving ‘in’ Vietnam It’s always sad when one privileged Ivy Leaguer with five Vietnam deferments attacks another privileged Ivy Leaguer with five Vietnam deferments. President Trump went after Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., this week with an absurd retelling of how the senator once fabricated stories about serving in Vietnam as a U.S. Marine. To be clear, Trump isn’t wrong in calling Blumenthal a liar. The senator most absolutely embellished his record years ago, making it sound as if he served in Vietnam. Blumenthal never served...

    A US F-35 pilot was forced to eject midair after the $100million fighter jet crashed in South Carolina. The aircraft was completely destroyed in the crash during a training exercise Friday, officials said. The crash appears to be the first of its kind for the troubled F-35 program, marking an unfortunate moment for the most expensive plane in history. Speaking on condition of anonymity ahead of an official announcement, a defense official told AFP that the Marine Corps F-35 had crashed outside Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in South Carolina.

    We’ve seen 3D-printed houses, ceilings, and bridges. But one of the most sensible uses for the technology may be by the U.S. Marine Corps, which recently finished printing the world’s first 3D-printed concrete barracks. The new technique is safer and less wasteful compared to conventional construction methods–and the research, a collaboration with the architectural firm SOM, could change how emergency housing and infrastructure are built, too. “The clearest advantage is flexibility,” Captain Matt Friedell, the Additive Manufacturing Lead at the Marine Corps Systems Command, headquartered in Quantico, Virginia, says over email. “We can make walls, obstacles, buildings, and other structures...

Reports said that the Russian military has utilized a deconfliction hotline a number of times over the past week to warn the U.S. military of upcoming Russian and Syrian military operations aimed at destroying the last pocket of rebels from the Idlib region.

    The United States has confirmed plans to more double the number of troops based in Norway, a move Russia has already criticized as “clearly unfriendly”. The Norwegian Defense Ministry on Wednesday said that the US had recently informed them that they would push forward with a plan to increase the number of US marines stationed in Norway from 300 to “up to 700”. […] When the plans were first floated in June, Russia’s embassy to Norway complained that they contravened assurances Norway gave the Soviet Union when it joined NATO in 1949 that no foreign combat troops would be stationed...
