St. Charles resident receives Army training in Japan
The training was part of an annual bilateral exercise between American and Japanese forces called Yama Sakura.
Officials said the exercise focuses on the development and refinement of the JGSDF and U.S. Army Pacific by exchanging ideas, tactics, techniques and experiences while building new and lasting friendships. It is one of the foundations of U.S. and Japanese defense cooperation, and is U.S. Army Pacific's premier bi-lateral command post exercise.
Both forces serve a support role to civil governments and agencies and must be able to work efficiently with organizations, that may have dissimilar operating habits or procedures.
Medeiros is an information systems specialist assigned to the 78th Signal Battalion, 349th Signal Company at Torii Station Okinawa, Japan. The specialist has served in the military for 10 years.
He is the son of Bonnie Jones and grandson of Betty Medeiros of Ormond Meadows Drive, Destrehan, La.
Medeiros graduated in 2002 from Will C. Crawford High School, San Diego, Calif.
