U.S. Marines, airmen and sailors completed Lance Corporal Leadership and Ethics Seminar 4-19 Aug. 30, 2019, hosted by Combined Arms Training Center Camp Fuji.

The week-long course is typically exclusive to Marines, but was extended to other services including-11 airmen from Yokota Air Base and three sailors from Yokosuka Naval Base.

According to 1st Lt. Ryan Morie, the assistant operations officer with CATC, the service members completed the rigorous training meant to promote inter-service relations by forming bonds between junior Marines, sailors, and airmen.

“We see joint training happen at the senior-enlisted and officer levels but almost never at the junior-enlisted level,” said U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Jonathan Wyble, director of class 4-19 with CATC.

The purpose of the course is to influence service members to develop a better understanding of what it takes to be a leader and bring what they learn back to their units, regardless of branch.

The honor graduate was U.S. Airman 1st Class Ryan Reid with Yokota Air Base and the “Gung Ho” award was presented to U.S. Marine Corps Pfc. Rolex Castro, motor transportation operator with CATC.

“At Combined Arms Training Center Camp Fuji, we aim to constantly professionalize our people through consistent and structured professional military education,” said Morie. “We look forward to the next event where we can train alongside our brothers in arms.”

The mission of Camp Fuji is to provide U.S. Forces the premier training facility in Japan, supports operational plans and strengthens relationships with Joint and Japanese partners, in order to ensure U.S. forward deployed and based forces are ready for contingency operations.
