USAG Humphreys, Republic of Korea —

The Republic of Korea (ROK) and United States navies and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) conducted a trilateral-naval exercise, Jan. 15 to Jan. 17, 2024, international waters near the Korean Peninsula and Japan.


The multi-day, trilateral exercise focused on enhancing collaborative deterrence and response capabilities among the U.S., ROK, and Japan, continuing to build readiness among the forces in defense of the homelands against any adversary.


Gen. Paul LaCamera, commander, United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command, and United States Forces Korea, and Adm. Kim Myung-soo, ROK Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman visited the USS Carl Vinson, Monday, Jan. 15, during the trilateral naval exercise.


During the visit, Gen. LaCamera and Adm. Kim observed the routine exercise activities, which focused on trilateral integration and interoperability across multiple domains. The collaborative exercise tested the countries’ trilateral cooperation capabilities in addressing maritime security threats.


“The sailors conducted critical training to continue to enhance interoperability among our navies,” LaCamera said. “Trilateral exercises like these help to maintain readiness of our naval forces and sharpen our combined skills.”


The Tri-Command remains committed to working closely with U.S. allies and partners to deter aggression, defend the homelands, protect U.S. interests, and, if necessary, defeat any adversary.
