  • Balikatan means "shoulder-to-shoulder," and characterizes the spirit of this bilateral Philippines-U.S. exercise. Exercise Balikatan 2013 (BK13), will take place April 5-17, in various locations throughout the Philippines. Combined staff exercises and field training will take place at Camp O’Donnell and Crow Valley in Tarlac, Subic Bay, and Fort Magsaysay in Nueva Ecija.

Also a part of this year’s exercise, members of the Philippines and U.S. armed forces will undertake joint humanitarian assistance projects in communities throughout Zambales province, and a multinational maritime tabletop exercise will in Camp Aguinaldo.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines and US military have a longstanding relationship that has contributed to regional security and stability, and is deeply rooted in cooperation. The multinational training that takes place during BK13 increases regional militaries’ ability to respond quickly and work together efficiently to provide relief and assistance in the event of natural disasters and other crises that threaten public safety and health.
