JINHAE, SOUTH KOREA
A Navy SEAL from Naval Special Warfare Group 1 out of Coronado, Calif., fast-ropes off of a U.S. MH-47 Chinook helicopter onto the helicopter deck of the AOE-59 Hwachun – a Korean naval refueling vessel – in Jinhae Harbor, Republic of Korea, March 20, 2012, as part of Foal Eagle 2012 – a multinational, joint-service exercise focusing on tactical-based warfare throughout the peninsula of Korea. Both U.S. and ROK Navy SEALs fast-roped out of the helicopter and performed a visit, board, search and seizure drill to demonstrate the interoperability between the two forces.
