Here cum the marines

US marines will be deployed at the US embassy in Wellington. It'll be a case of "Don't ask, don't tell" in Wellington. Hopefully the cute ones will visit Auckland frequently.

Oh, yeah, it's just part of a security upgrade of US embassies around the world. Marine guards were stationed at the Wellington embassy from the time it opened in 1954 until they were withdrawn in 1995 for budget reasons.
