RIMPAC 98

RIMPAC is a biannual fleet exercise in the Pacific Ocean. Its goal is to enhance the tactical capabilities of participating units in major aspects of maritime operations at sea.

In 1998 the exercise took place in the waters off Hawaii and included participants from six Pacific nations. The U.S. contributed more than 50 ships, 200 aircraft and 25,000 military men and women from all services.

Official Navy Artist DM2 Robert Malin recorded the U.S. Navy's role in this massive undertaking. At the same time, he was able to document the conversion of the decommissioned U.S.S. Missouri into a museum at Pearl Harbor next the Arizona Memorial.
