That September, the PHIBRON 1 and 11th MEU (SOC) team deployed to the Indian Ocean and returned to the Horn of Africa as the United States attempted to help a nation in crisis.
The amphibious force ultimately consisted of Amphibious Group (PHIBGRU) 2 (thirteen ships), PHIBGRU 3 (thirteen ships), PHIBRON 5 (five ships), 4th MEB, 5th MEB, and 13th MEU (SOC), totaling thirty-one ships and some seventeen thousand Marines afloat.
What this exercise really brings to the table, is getting that larger staff, larger than a MEU, that MEB staff integrated with the PHIBRONS and integrated with the Expeditionary Strike Group.
