Canadian Army 2 PPCLI - Simunition in Urban Terrain Exercise

The 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, A
Company, uses simunition in Military Operations in Urban Terrain at
Marine Corps Training Area Bellows in Waimanalo, Hawaii, on July 8,
2012.

1,400 Canadian sailors, soldiers, and airmen and airwomen
participate in the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2012 combined and joint
exercise taking place near the Hawaiian Islands from June 29 to August
3. Scheduled and coordinated by the U.S. Navy Third Fleet, RIMPAC also
offers Canada the senior members of the Canadian Forces the opportunity
to assume positions of leadership, further enhancing Canada's ability to
work with other nations of the Asia-Pacific region. RIMPAC 2012
involves forces from Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, India,
Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway,
Peru, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Russia, Singapore, Thailand,
Tonga, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Rim of the
Pacific (RIMPAC) is the world's largest international maritime exercise,
designed to prepare military forces to work together in missions
ranging from providing humanitarian aide to full combat operations.
RIMPAC began as an annual exercise in 1971 and since 1974 has been
scheduled every other year. The endurance of exercise demonstrates the
value of bringing international forces together to train and improve
their ability to operate in a joint and combined multi-national force
environment. Canada, along with only Australia and the United States,
has participated in RIMPAC since its inception.
