It's Not Called Super Garuda Shield for Nothing!

2 months ago

A showcase for partnerships and military alliances, Super Garuda Shield involves more than 4,000 service members from 19 nations observing — or training side-by-side — in one of the largest multinational exercises in the Indo-Pacific region.

Super Garuda Shield has expanded from being the cornerstone for the U.S.-Indonesia military relationship to include troops from Australia, Japan, Singapore, France and the United Kingdom.

The training includes academic exchanges and professional development exercises, in addition to a command and control simulation, amphibious and airborne operations, an airfield seizure exercise, and field training that culminates in a live-fire event. 

More than 20 members of the Hawaii National Guard are in attendance this year, bringing their experience responding to volcanic eruptions, floods, COVID-19  and, most recently, the wildfire response in Lahaina, Hawaii.
