    PACIFIC OCEAN (July 20, 2016) - Sailors from the guided-missile destroyer USS Stockdale (DDG 106) are taken amidships during a VBSS (Visit, board, search, and seizure) exercise with Chinese navy sailors from the guided-missile destroyer Xian (153) for Rim of the Pacific 2016. Twenty-six nations, 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world's oceans. RIMPAC 2016 is the 25th exercise in the series that began in 1971. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class David A. Cox/Released)
