The Department of Defense announced today that the armed forces of Thailand, Singapore, Mongolia, Philippines and the United States will conduct exercise Cobra Gold 04 in Thailand May 13-27.
Cobra Gold 04 is a regularly scheduled joint/combined exercise and is designed to improve U.S., Thai, Singaporean, Mongolian and Filipino combat readiness and combined-joint interoperability, and enhance security and humanitarian interests of our friends and allies in the region.
Cobra Gold 04 is one of the largest exercises involving U.S. forces in the Asia-Pacific region. Training will focus on improving interoperability between coalition forces conducting a United Nations-sponsored peace enforcement operation in conjunction with humanitarian and disaster relief operations.
