JDS Aishima (MSC 688)

The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force coastal mine hunter JDS Aishima (MSC 688) flies the American national ensign and signals "Good Luck" from the flag hoist to the mine warfare ship USS Patriot (MCM 7). Patriot and Aishima are participating in 1JA, a bilateral mine countermeasures exercise between the U.S. Navy and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. Patriot replied by flying the Japanese ensign and signaling Bravo Zulu. (Photo: U.S. Navy photo by Mineman Seaman J'myle Koretz/Released)
