Okinawa-based U.S. Marines from 3rd Marine Division watched as Royal Thai Reconnaissance Marines showed them how to catch a cobra during jungle survival training at Thailand's Ban Chan Krem Training Area May 14. The Marines got a crash course in jungle survival from their Thai counterparts during Cobra Gold's nine-day field training exercise. Cobra Gold is an annual, multilateral exercise, now in its 26th year, gives the U.S., Thailand and their Pacific partners skills to come together and act decisively at a moment's notice to meet any contingency that could threaten the security and stability of the region.
