Got a note from folks in the know regarding the ExFOB. We recently mentioned the deployment of a Marine company outfitted with renewable energy systems. First reports are in and they are good! Please see the below. Well done, Marines!
Friday we received feedback from India 3/5, the unit that deployed with the systems we identified from ExFOB. The article and subsequent video give a great example of why the Expeditionary Energy Office exists. We are grateful for the opportunity to positively affect Marines' war fighting capability. The 5:23 mark of the video is the start of the energy portion, but I recommend you watch the whole video. Lt Patterson's discussion about how his Marines lean on one another is touching and makes me proud to be an American and a Marine.
