Green Bay/Chokai Picnic

Green Bay/Chokai Picnic


USS Green Bay and Japan Maritime
Self-Defense Force ship Chokai held their annual sister ship picnic at
Nimitz Park. So we have joint barbecue between JDS Chokai and USS Green Bay and we are sister ships and we have a very very good friendship. The event brought the two crews and their families together and highlighted the importance
of non-operational partnerships. It makes it easier for us to work
together because we are a little more comfortable with each other and we
learn how to deal with them on a personal level and not just a
professional level and I think that just makes everything a whole lot smoother
for us. Events like these help U.S. and Japanese forces build camaraderie and teamwork. Petty Officer Stephen Stromberg. Fleet
Activities Sasebo, Japan.
