Friends, family and fellow Soldiers bid farewell to the outgoing commanding general of U.S. Army Pacific, Gen. Robert B. Brown, during a farewell ceremony at historic Palm Circle at Fort Shafter. In a final interview, the general emphasized the Army’s changing role in the Pacific to defend against new threats, such as China’s modern DF-21D anti-ship ballistic missiles.
Chinese military vehicles carrying DF-21D anti-ship ballistic missiles, potentially capable of sinking a U.S. Nimitz-class aircraft carrier in a single strike, drive past Tiananmen Gate during a military parade to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, in Beijing on Sept. 3, 2015.
