PACIFIC OCEAN - An MV-22 Osprey assigned to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 262 flies near Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), as an SH-60K helicopter from Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force prepares to take off. Carl Vinson completed a bilateral exercise in the Western Pacific with Japan, March 23.

The operations began with Vinson, destroyer USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108), and Japanese helicopter destroyer JS Ise (DDH 182) on March 11 in the South China Sea. The series of training drills and Sailor-to-Sailor exchanges concluded waters near Okinawa, Japan. The combined operations were designed to enhance maritime interoperability between longstanding allies.

"I thought it was really cool to have this opportunity," said Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Jeremiah Karelius, a communications watch officer aboard Carl Vinson. Karelius hosted a communications operator from Ise during a four-hour exchange visit on the aircraft carrier. "Working together now makes it easier to understand how our systems are structured so that we can troubleshoot if we encounter problems while working together again."

During the bilateral exercise, Carl Vinson also operated jointly with the U.S. Marine Corps. Okinawa-based MV-22B Osprey aircraft from Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 262 completed carrier deck landing qualifications aboard Carl Vinson and helped transport personnel to and from shore.

The mother of a USS Carl Vinson air traffic controller is well-known for sending awesome care packages to her son and the rest of his department while underway. She has been dealing with health issues lately but still found the time and energy to continue the tradition. The package recently arrived and the Air Operations team would like to say "Thank You!" We hope you get better soon.
