YOKOSUKA, Japan (NNS) -- Sailors and civilian members of U.S. Fleet Activities Yokosuka (CFAY) Port Operations and Ship Repair Facility and Japan Regional Maintenance Center (SRF-JRMC) assist Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) auxiliary, multi-purpose support ship Enshu (AMS 4305) during a dry dock evolution for scheduled maintenance, July 2.

The 1960 Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan states that when CFAY facilities and areas are temporarily not being used, the interim use of the facilities – such as Dry Docks 1, 2 and 3 - may be used. An agreement has been in place since the mid-70s for JMSDF to use any of these three CFAY dry docks if they are available.   

CFAY provides, maintains, and operates base facilities and services in support of the 7th Fleet's forward-deployed naval forces, 71 tenant commands, and 27,000 military and civilian personnel and their families.
