Trident Juncture provides a unique environment for the Marines and Sailors to rehearse their amphibious capabilities. The LCACs originated from USS Iwo Jima and showcased the ability of the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group and the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit to rapidly project combat power ashore.
