US navy wraps up 10 days of training with Brunei in East Sea

US and Brunei armed forces finished their 25th annual maritime training exercise Thursday at Muara Naval Base, Brunei, after more than a week of operations in the East Sea.

Navy Rear Adm. Joey Tynch, commander of Logistics Group Western Pacific, said in a Navy statement at the conclusion of Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training, or CARAT that there is no better demonstration of their shared commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific than working together at sea.

The 10-day training included tracking exercises, deck landing qualifications and medical evacuation simulations, divisional tactics, and replenishment at sea.

CARAT Brunei 2019 is the fourth leg of the exercise that has already included separate training with Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Thailand.
