Northern Viper tests Team Misawa’s power projection hub readiness

U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Garrett Mills, a Heavy Marine Helicopter Squadron 462 crew chief, speaks with another crew chief during a delivery operation at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Aug. 16, 2017. Misawa AB supported more than 500 Marines who temporarily deployed to the base in order to train and reinforce their mission tactics for future tasks during Northern Viper 17. The HMH-462, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, is forward deployed under the unit deployment program with 1st MAW, based in Okinawa, Japan, for training purposes. NV17 exercised U.S. and Japan’s interoperability as a combined, joint defense force while reducing the overall burden on the people of Okinawa by relocating training to mainland Japan.
