Summary

Capt. Kevin P. Campbell, left, commanding officer of the guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain (CG 57), meets with Dr. James Boutilier, special adviser to Canada's Maritime Forces Pacific Headquarters, a guest speaker at a conference at the National Center for Maritime Policy Research, Bahria University. Lake Champlain and ships from other countries are participating in the multinational naval exercise AMAN, an Urdu word meaning peace. The 10-day exercise, which began March 5, focuses on air, surface and maritime security training and includes representatives from 38 countries as well as ships from 11 nations to include the United States, United Kingdom, Pakistan and Australia. The at-sea portion of the exercise is primarily conducted in the North Arabian Sea, off the coast of Pakistan. Lake Champlain is deployed as part of the Boxer Amphibious Readiness Group supporting maritime security operations in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.

U.S. National Archives & DVIDS

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
