U.S. Navy pilots assigned to Patrol Squadron Eight (VP-8) provide range clearance for a sinking exercise during Valiant Shield 16, 220 nautical miles Northeast of Guam, Sept.13, 2016. Units from the U.S. Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps provided live fire from ships and aircraft in order to sink the decommissioned USS Rentz (FFG 46). Conducting these types of joint training events provide service members the opportunity to improve communication while gaining proficiency in tactics, targeting and live firing against a surface target at sea. VS16 is a biennial, U.S.- only field training exercise that focuses on training all services to increase interoperability and working relationships (Motion imagery by Cpl. Theodore N. Bergan)
