CAMP COURTNEY, JAPAN & FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA (January 22, 2018) /For immediate release/ — Large OSD “Supply Drop” incoming to Camp Courtney in Okinawa, Japan for hundreds of Marines and Sailors. Shipment will impact the Single Marine program as the base recreation needs at-large.

The installation is home to one of three global Marine Expeditionary Forces.

 

USMC MSgt Samuel C. stated, “We are permanently stationed in Okinawa, Japan as a force in readiness covering the entire PACOM AO.”
