USS Shiloh Commences Silent Shark 2015 With ROKN
WATERS NEAR GUAM (NNS) -- The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67) commenced Silent Shark 2015, June 8.

Silent Shark 2015 is a three-day bilateral anti-submarine warfare exercise in the vicinity of Guam between the U.S. and Republic of Korea (ROK) Navies.

"We are conducting this exercise as a routine training opportunity with the ROKN to further build and increase interoperability," said Capt. Kurush F. Morris, commanding officer of Shiloh. "These training exercises are essential in ensuring security and stability in the region."

During the exercise, Shiloh Sailors will get the opportunity to identify and track participating submarines using different techniques from ship's binoculars to sonar.

Aside from Shiloh, a Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine, a ROK submarine and other maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft from the U.S. and ROK will be participating in this exercise.

"We, as a military, participate in Silent Shark and similar exercises to showcase our capabilities and also work with allies and partners to build proficiency and address shared security interests," said Morris.

Shiloh is on patrol in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility in support of security and stability in the Indo-Asia Pacific region.
