The article focuses on the sustained relationship established by the U.S. Marine Corps' Foreign Military Training Unit (FMTU) with partner countries. The FMTU was founded after the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001 to intervene military issues in some countries and to train local military forces in countering terrorism. FMTU units consider mental focus as a complex task in maintaining bonds that are based on the locals' cultural norms.
