    180712-N-LY160-1500 PACIFIC OCEAN (July 12, 2018) Sailors assigned to Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Olympia (SSN 717) prepare to launch a UGM-84 Harpoon missile during the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise to sink the decommissioned ex-USS Racine (LST-1191) July 12 off the coast of Hawaii. Twenty-five nations, 46 ships, five submarines, about 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 27 - Aug. 2 in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity while fostering and sustaining cooperative relationships among participants critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security of the world's oceans. RIMPAC 2018 is the 26th exercise in the series that began in 1971. (U.S. Navy video by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Michael H. Lee/Released)
