Cpl. Jacob Arcidiacono, an electrician with Combat Logistics Battalion 31, strips a wire during relief efforts in the wake of Super Typhoon Yutu, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Nov. 1, 2018.

Arcidiacono, a native of Rockford, Michigan, graduated from Rockford High School in June 2015 before enlisting the same month.

Marines with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit and CLB-31 arrived on Tinian Oct. 29-30 in the wake of Super Typhoon Yutu as part of the U.S. Defense Support of Civil Authorities here.

The Marines arrived at the request of CNMI officials and the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency to assist relief efforts in the wake of Yutu, the largest typhoon to ever hit a U.S. territory.

The 31st MEU, the Marine Corps’ only continuously forward-deployed MEU, provides a flexible force ready to perform a wide-range of military operations across the Indo-Pacific region.
