Partnerships Matter: RIMPAC 2014 Gets Underway

The future is maritime partnerships. The world’s navies must be able to come together quickly to work on common interests and things that are important worldwide. The Rim of the Pacific Exercise 2014 is an example of that.

Twenty-two nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 26 to Aug. 1, in and around the Hawaiian Islands.

The world’s largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world’s oceans. RIMPAC 2014 is the 24th exercise in the series that began in 1971.
