Eighth Theater Sustainment Command soldier participates in Yama Sakura 61

Staff Sgt. James Yantis, an intelligence sergeant from 8th Theater Sustainment Command, U.S. Army Pacific, Fort Shafter, Hawaii, looks on as his Japanese counterparts plot information onto a map at Camp Itami, Japan, Feb. 4. Yantis is participating in Yama Sakura 61, which is being held just north of Osaka. Yama Sakura is an annual Japan-based, simulation-driven, joint-bilateral command post exercise held with the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Force and the U.S. military. Yama Sakura is designed to enhance U.S. and Japan combat readiness and interoperability and strengthen military relationships. Nearly 800 U.S. military personnel, mostly U.S. Army, and more than 3,500 Japan Ground Self-Defense Force service members are participating in Yama Sakura 61 that runs from Jan. 23 through Feb. 5.
