PHILIPPINE SEA (Aug. 26, 2020) - Bbaldur, a military working dog with 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), takes a break during bite work training aboard amphibious assault ship USS America (LHA 6). The 31st MEU’s military working dogs train every day on ship in order to maintain their skills in tracking, explosives detection, and combatant detainee operations. America, flagship of America Amphibious Ready Group (ARG), 31st MEU team, is operating in the 7th fleet area of operations to enhance interoperability with allies and partners and serve as a ready response force to defend peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region. The America ARG, 31st MEU team remains the premier crisis response force in the region despite the unique challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
