Alliances & Multinational Operations

Starting in 1949 with the creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the U.S. Navy operated with European, East Asian, and Latin American navies. American and foreign sailors developed lasting respect and confidence in the professionalism of each other through at-sea training exercises, personnel exchanges, and joint operations.

High Resolution Ship Model

Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force Destroyer Teruzuki:  In 1959, Admiral Misugu Ihara, JMSDF Chief of Maritime Staff, presented this model to Admiral Arleigh Burke, the U.S. Chief of Naval Operations and sometimes-called "father of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force." The Teruzuki was a modified U.S. Fletcher-class ship.
