DA NANG, Vietnam (Aug. 27, 2015) American and Vietnamese medical personnel transport a simulated patient on a litter from a Vietnamese rescue boat to the hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) during a coastal medicine disaster drill as the culminating event of Pacific Partnership 2015. The drill, which included personnel from Mercy and Vietnamese medical professionals, was intended to demonstrate the ability of the U.S. and Vietnam to work together during a crisis situation. Mercy is at its fourth mission port of Vietnam for PP15. Pacific Partnership is in its 10th iteration and is the largest annual multilateral humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness mission conducted in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. While training for crisis conditions, Pacific Partnership missions to date have provided real world medical care to approximately 270,000 patients and veterinary services to more than 38,000 animals. Additionally, the mission has provided critical infrastructure development to host nations through more than 180 engineering projects. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Valerie Eppler/RELEASED)
