The JGSDF were at NTC for the first time last month to conduct joint training exercises with 3-2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 7th Infantry Division, from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. Training opportunities such as this are good for both countries as it encourages mutual respect and promotes enduring relationships for both U.S. and Japanese soldiers. (Photo by Staff Sgt.
