U.S. Army Pacific Command Sgt. Maj. Frank Leota and U.S. Army Japan Command Sgt. Maj. Steven Payton paid a visit to the newly-minted Japan Ground Self Defense Force non-commissioned officer school during their command visit to the bi-lateral training exercise Yama Sakura 63, held this year at Camp Sendai, Japan. Members of the JGSDF have previously attended leadership courses with the U.S. Marines and have used both as inspiration for setting up their course which is comprised of classroom and field training environments.
