In December, Mansfield Fellow Logan Barlow visited the Nyutabaru Air Rescue Squadron at their base in Kyushu, where he learned firsthand about Japan Air Self-Defense Force rescue operations. Captain Barlow, a U.S. Air Force pilot, also thanked first responders from the JASDF who assisted with rescue operations following a U.S. Marine Corps plane crash in November 2017.
On February 4, Captain Barlow will be speaking at a seminar in Tokyo, co-hosted by the Mansfield Foundation and the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), about the future of the U.S.-Japan security alliance. More information on that event is available here.
