Today, @MrfDarwin #Marines, Australian Defence Force @DeptDefence soldiers and Japan Ground Self-Defense Force @Japan_GSDF soldiers began Exercise Southern Jackaroo 2021 in Australia.

The first-ever National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism is a milestone in our efforts to address a serious security threat. While domestic law enforcement agencies will take the lead, @DeptofDefense will do its part to support this strategy. https://t.co/yoiT781i3c
