Keen Sword 19: Historic first JGSDF jump from USAF C-130Js in Japan
An aerial view of Oita prefecture from an Air Force C-130J Super Hercules assigned to the 36th Airlift Squadron, Nov. 4, 2018, during Keen Sword 19. Keen Sword is a concrete example of the strength of the U.S.-Japan alliance, the foundation of peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region for almost 60 years. The relationships that are built and maintained during these events are critical to the shared capability to respond to contingencies at a moment's notice. (U.S. Air Force photo by Yasuo Osakabe)
