Racing to load missiles on fighter jets. Disarming underwater mines. Searching enemy ships. Launching beach assaults.
The U.S. military has been busy in the past few weeks.
Across two military exercises — called Eager Lion and CARAT — the U.S. military worked with 27 countries on collaborative defense and security, showcasing its guided missile destroyers, F-16 fighter jets and more in the Middle East and Asia.
And nearly six thousand U.S. military personnel accompanied those key assets.
