Friends, Firsts and the Future at RimPac 2018” is a new article by Lieutenant Commander Leah Cole, U.S. Coast Guard Military Fellow at the Daniel K. Inouye Center for Security Studies.

Published recently by the U.S. Naval Institute’s Proceedings Today, the article covers what’s new and significant in this year’s Rim of the Pacific exercise. From the use of social media to the Integration of land-based forces, RimPac 2018 continues to expand the capabilities of those involved.

According to Cole, “A fully joint, ASEAN, and Allied-partner maritime picture serves to strengthen Asia–Pacific partnerships. This increased interoperability allows more flexibility for partnering in the future. Targeted to today’s sailors, RimPac’s approach will form lasting connections between exercise alumni and affiliates and strengthen maritime security in the Asia–Pacific.”
