Prabhu Ram Sharma, Nepalese Assistant Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Saroj Pratap Rana, and the Commanding General of the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade U.S. Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Kyle B. Ellison attend the seven-year anniversary memorial ceremony for those lost in Operation Sahayogi Haat, the U.S. response to the April 25, 2015, 7.8-magnitude Nepal earthquake. “All those service members deployed to Nepal were selfless individuals dedicated to the international humanitarian aid mission they embarked upon,” said Ellison. “We stood by Nepal then, and continue to stand by Nepal today.” During the operation, the 900 US service members comprising Joint Task Force 505 led by the 3D MEB, executed 22 missions and distributed over 113 short tons of aid to remote, inaccessible villages. Additionally, military aircraft transported 550 response personnel and other civilians, including 63 injured Nepali citizens to hospitals for lifesaving care.
