Participants and observers from Nepal, U.S., and international militaries and agencies gather Sept. 10 for the first day of the field training portion of the Nepal Pacific Resilience Disaster Response Exercise & Exchange in Kathmandu, Nepal. The DREE, co-hosted by the Nepalese army and U.S. Army Pacific, runs from Sept. 9-12, and it is the first in Nepal to include a field training exercise designed to practically apply civil-military disaster preparedness and response initiatives when faced with a massive earthquake scenario.
