India, U.S. Armies Begin Joint Exercises

Three hundred personnel each from the Indian and U.S. armies began joint exercises at a base in Elmendorf, Alaska. The 14-day drill marks the 17th edition of Yudh Abhyas, the longest running exercise between India and the United States. While the focus is on interoperability and cohesion, both sides will be looking to share experiences: India with its vaunted expertise in high-altitude operations, and the U.S. with its technological prowess.
