Lino Miani, a humanitarian assistance advisor with the U.S. Agency for International Development's Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance, speaks to Colombian Naval Infantry Maj. Gen. Ricardo Vargas, the commander of the Naval Infantry Training Base in Covenas, Colombia, following the final brief for UNITAS Amphibious in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Aug. 24, 2018. The knowledge gained and procedures put in place during this year’s tabletop exercise will inform the UNITAS Amphibious field training exercise in 2019. The intent for next year’s live event is to embark participating partners at sea. This will serve as a proof of concept for establishing interoperability amongst the region’s navies – and ultimately the development of a standing multinational maritime task force postured to respond to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief situations throughout the region.
