America, Ise, and six other JMSDF ships conducted precision maneuvering and integrated surface warfare training, which enhanced operability and partnership between the two navies.
“Our ability to come together as a partnered surface action group, right out of a two-month pause in operations to conduct maintenance and training ashore, speaks to the strength and agility of our relationship with the JMSDF,” said Capt. Ken Ward, America’s commanding officer. “We’ve aggressively rekindled the relationship with our host nation sister ship, JS Ise, as COVID restrictions have lifted. It was extremely gratifying to be able to plan, stage and execute with our JMSDF partners in nearly the same fashion that we used to prior to the pandemic.”
