Republic of China Marine Corps [ROCMC] Training
Until recentlyl, the Marines in Taiwan were drafted and served an average of 18 months. They also have very limited training grounds. Because Taiwan is so small, it's hard to find places in to train. For example, Tawain Marines have trouble finding places to do live-fire exercises. Because of the size of the United States, there are many places U.S. Marines can train. Tawain Marine Corps do not have combat experience as many American Marines do. They aren't as involved in world events as the US Marines here are. And because Tawain Marines only serve a year and a half, their combat readiness is decreased.

Major General Wang of Commander of Marine Corps said, Marine Corps have always been good interaction with Hengchun area. Help local people cropping onions each year. This is the best performance of “Caring and Helping people”. Looking at soldiers who work hard to help people cropping and farmers with grateful smile all over the face, we can imagine the relationship between military and people will be more intimate. We will receive practical support even in the combat readiness training and national defense." Many Marines never thought of experiencing rural life besides combat training during service. Being with farmers, they realized the joys and sorrows of farmers and also build up deep relationship with each other which is a rare military career windfall.

On the sea, they are taught to maneuver rubber boats while combating the enemy and detonating targets.
