INTERESTED in what's been going on during Talisman Saber 2013?

The Bulletin has created this 'story' to pull all of its video, story and photogallery coverage together to help readers find what they are looking for easier.

Our reporters and photographers have been busy covering the joint military exercise in the Rockhampton region, namely Shoalwater Bay.

Over the weekend, a group US and Australian soldiers helped out a fallen soldiers family in Yeppoon. Read that story here.

There was also the open day at the Rockhampton Showground, a hive of activity at the airport and the benefit on the local economy.

This rolling coverage piece will also include coverage on the Talisman Saber protesters, like this photogallery.

Here is a video about a Field Hospital.

Here's another photogallery, this time of the troops.

And a Q&A piece where the US Military answers questions about the bombs dropped on the Great Barrier Reef.

And here are the stories that sparked the Q&A:

US jets drop unarmed bombs on reef park in emergency

Four bombs were jettisoned in the Reef due to 'boats'

Or today's story about peace activist Graeme Dunstan being fined just under $1000 in court.

Here are more stories about what the protesters have been up during this military exercise:

And, when the peace activists started arriving in Rockhampton to begin organising resistance to the Talisman Sabre military exercises.

Then there's more video's like the paratroopers landing.

And the story about the injured paratroopers during the exercise.

Here's the video about why fitness is important when you are a US Marine.

Then there's Kathleen Calderwood's story about the paratroopers that traveled 15 hours via plane from Alaska to make the jump into Shoalwater Bay.

There many kids, of all ages, enjoying the display at the Talisman Saber Open Day at the Rockhampton Showgrounds recently.

Our coverage, and the comments made by readers, has sparked interest from people linked to the US Defence forces. One woman, who is the proud daughter of a US Marine and lives at Woodbury, near Shoalwater Bay, writing in defense of the servicemen after controversial remarks in stories and in comments online.

The activity has attracted more than just protesters and interest from the general community. Curious crocodiles attracted to hive of activity at airport

Here's a video of Garrison Chaplain Steve Cloudstreet talking about life as an Army Chaplain ministering to the troops.
