    POHAKULOA TRAINING AREA, Hawaii (July 17, 2018) U.S. Marines with Bravo Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment, load high-explosive round in a M777 towed 155 mm howitzer during live-fire training as part of Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise at Pohakuloa Training Area, Hawaii, July 17, 2018. RIMPAC provides high-value training for task-organized, highly capable Marine Air-Ground Task Force and enhances the critical crisis response capability of U.S. Marines in the Pacific. Twenty-five nations, 46 ships, five submarines, about 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 27 to Aug. 2 in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California.
