Four days after of March 11 when Japan was hit by a major earthquake, one destroyer departed from a naval port to the Gulf of Aden of the offing of Somalia. It’s for Somalian pirate. DD-113,Sazanami left Japan with DD-105,Inazuma.
When Japan weakened by a great earthquake disaster and a tsunami, China and Russia were menaces. And real they acted. However, the Japan-U.S. alliance functioned effectively. The U.S. forces contributed for Japan and won the threatening action of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.
I show respect for the Marine Self Defense Force.
