We are running a special forum on Bold Alligator 2012. We are posting pieces on the exercise itself, lessons learned and the implications of shaping a new maneuver way capability from the sea. We have a daily photograph posted and are building a photo gallery from USN, USMC and SLD photos. We invite readers to participate and if they wish to submit articles for publication on the Forum. The latest pieces are on the USCG perspective, the initial lessons learned from 2nd MEF, and a 2nd MAW perspective on the coalition engagement.
