Marine Corps Systems Command spent past few days engaging with visitors from all over the world at the Sea-Air-Space Exhibition this past week in Washington, DC. Sea-Air-Space is the largest maritime exposition in the United States, bringing together the U.S. defense industrial base, private-sector U.S. companies and key military decision makers for the three-day event. Here are some of our favorite moments.
Marine Corps Systems Command, the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab and PEO Land Systems were located in what was collectively known as the "Marine Zone."
