U.S. Army Pacific Soldiers are in Tonga this week taking part in “Coral Reef” a joint-multinational humanitarian assistance and disaster relief exercise primarily designed to test the USARPAC Contingency Command Post’s ability to react to a disaster. HAST personnel met with members of the Tonga National Emergency Management Office Monday, Sergeant First Class Kevin Bell Reports from Tongatapu, Kingdom of Tonga. Includes sound bites from Commander Ashley Fua, Assistant Superintendent, Tonga Police; Leveni Aho, Director, Tonga National Emergency Management Office; and Lt. Col.
