It's always our honor to share stories and messages from the brave men and women serving our country. It's especially cool that members of the U.S. Navy from our backyard are part of this special project.

Exercise Sea Breeze 2019, focuses on multiple warfare areas including maritime interdiction operations, air defense, anti-submarine warfare, damage control, search and rescue, and amphibious operations.

This is the 19th iteration of Sea Breeze in which naval forces from 19 nations contribute in the annual exercise co-hosted by the Ukrainian and U.S. Navies promoting regional security and peace.

Other participants include Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Georgia, Germany, Moldova, Norway, Turkey, Ukraine, and the U.S., along with Algeria, Bangladesh, Israel, Portugal, Qatar, Sweden, and UAE, as observers.
