U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Landis Lied, an embarkation and logistics specialist assigned to Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 122, helps a student with multiplication at MacFarlane Primary School in Katherine, Northern Territory, Australia, Sept. 1, 2016. Marines are invited to the school every iteration of Southern Frontier, a three week unit level training conducted by U.S. Marines at Royal Australian Air Force Base Tindal, to mentor, teach, and be role models to the students. MacFarlane Primary School also gives the students a consolidated education in literacy, numeracy, respect and behavior management. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Nicole Zurbrugg)
