Pacific Partnership 2016 (PP16) kicked off in Da Nang, Vietnam on July 15th, for the third consecutive year, with the arrival of the U.S. hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) and the Japanese Navy ship JSDS Shimokita (LST-4002). The Vietnam People's Navy ship Khanh Hoa is also participating in this year's event. This is the seventh time in eleven years that the event has taken place in Vietnam’s provinces and cities./.
