Since March 2020, force health protection policies have impacted international exchanges between forward-deployed naval forces (FDNF) commands and their host nation of Japan. As current policy permitted, Green Bay hosted a tour for 19 Midshipmen and one instructor.
“We were honored to host these future Japanese maritime officers in a post-COVID ‘first’ for our ship, our squadron, and our Sasebo Navy,” said Capt. Tate Robinson, Green Bay’s commanding officer. “I am so glad we are able to do things like this again. Thanks to our crew’s efforts over the past year and more to stay healthy and sink COVID, we’re able to further bilateral relations with our host nation and trusted partner.”
