    Soldiers from the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force bound toward their objective while doing a mounting exercise during Rising Thunder 19 at Yakima Training Center, Yakima, Washington, Sept. 5.
    The training was conducted along with Soldiers from D Company, 2nd Battalion, 130th Infantry Regiment, Illinois Army National Guard, to enhance lethal capabilities of their combined force as well as develop military relations.
    The execution of the mission prioritized safety, which required proper coordination between the U.S. and Japanese troops and repeated rehearsals. These measures contributed strongly to the success of the training.
    Rising Thunder 2019 is an annual exercise between the U.S. Army and the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF) and is part of Pacific Pathways 19-3. RT19 is a USARPAC-sponsored capstone event. U.S. Army Units participating include the 7th Infantry Division and the Illinois Army National Guard's 108th Sustainment Brigade and 33rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team. The exercise consists of company/platoon unilateral and bilateral training events in two phases, culminating with a bilateral live-fire exercise. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
