Welll look who is Hawaii?

Army Times


About 60 soldiers from the Chinese army are in Hawaii this month to train with the U.S. Army and participate in the first field exercise the two countries have conducted together.
The disaster management exchange is scheduled for today through Thursday at Marine Corps Training Area-Bellows in Hawaii. Senior members of the Chinese delegation will then travel to Washington, D.C., and the Northeast to visit areas affected by last year’s Hurricane Sandy.
The Hawaii-based portion of the exercise is a continuation of an annual — and growing — exchange between the Army and the People’s Liberation Army, said Col. John Lee, strategy and plans officer for security cooperation and policy at U.S. Army Pacific.
As the U.S. military turns its focus toward the Pacific, USARPAC has been working to grow its engagements and exercises with all of its partner nations in the region. And China is a critical part of it.
