The Marine Corps and the Japan Self Defense Force particpated in Patriot Advanced Capability-3 deployment training August 29th at Yokota Air Base and Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in Japan. The PAC-3 protects allied ground forces and critical assets from threats such as advanced aircraft, cruise missiles, and tactical-ballistic missiles. This training displays the strength of the U.S. - Japan alliance, and demonstrates their combined ability to rapidly deploy multiple defense assets to U.S. military installations across the Pacific.
