RIMPAC is a multi-national exercise designed to prepare forces to be interoperable and ready for a wide range of potential combined and joint operations and missions. RIMPAC, hosted by Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, demonstrates the Navy’s commitment, as expressed in the Maritime Strategy, to working with our global partners in protecting the maritime freedom as a basis for global prosperity and to ensure stability throughout the Pacific Rim. This year’s exercise consists of 14 nations, 34 ships, five submarines, more than 100 aircraft and 20,000 personnel. Units from Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, Peru, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Thailand and the United States are scheduled to participate. VRC-30 provides movement of priority cargo, mail and passengers to and from Pacific Fleet aircraft carriers. The men and women sailors of VRC-30 represent the best in America today, and their support in RIMPAC is an example our Navy’s commitment – a global force for good.
