A Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) MH-53 Sea Stallion helicopter touches down on the flight deck of the amphibious transport dock USS Denver (LPD 9) during exercise Keen Sword 2011 in the East China Sea on Dec. 5, 2010. Keen Sword is the 10th joint-bilateral field training exercise since 1986 involving Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) and the U.S. military. The timing of this exercise also coincides with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the U.S.-Japan Cooperation and Security Treaty. Denver is part of the permanently forward-deployed Essex Amphibious Ready Group and is conducting a scheduled patrol in the Western Pacific.
