U.S. Flies Bombers Near North Korea After Nuke Test
Huffington Post - 5 months

The two bombers conducted a low-altitude flight over Osan Air Base in South Korea, which is 77 km (48 miles) from the Demilitarised Zone border with the North and about 40 km (25 miles) from the South’s capital Seoul. The scheduled fly-over was delayed from Monday due to weather conditions in Guam, where the bombers are stationed. The bombers, capable of carrying the largest payload of both guided and unguided weapons among U.S. Air Force aircraft, were escorted by South Korean and U.S. fighter jets as they conducted the low speed flight over Osan.

Yahoo News - over 1 year
HONOLULU, Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Self-inflicted digital wounds created by a lack of interoperability among joint U.S. and coalition forces' technologies may cause more harm than enemy cyber forces, according to military leaders from the United States and partner nations in the Asia-Pacific region. "Before we have any contact with an enemy, we'll find we have degraded communication," Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, USA, commander, U.S. Army Pacific, said during his opening speech at TechNet Asia-Pacific 2015 sponsored by AFCEA International and the AFCEA Hawaii Chapter. The Asia-Pacific region features a diverse set of allies and potential partners who will shape the nature of future coalitions, so the lack of interoperability will require an international solution.
