Yama Sakura Opening Ceremony Celebrates Long Partnership
CAMP ASAKA, JAPAN - Lieutenant Gen. Benjamin R. Mixon, USARPAC commander, and Lt. Gen. Kazushi Izumi, commander JGSDF Eastern Army, salute the colors during the playing of their nation's national anthems at the opening ceremony for Yama Sakura 55, held Sunday, Dec. 7, 2008, on the grounds of the JGSDF Transportation School.

I firmly believe that this exercise holds great significance in promoting the solidarity of U.S - Japanese relations and contributing to the stability of our region.
