    WESTERN PACIFIC OCEAN | Naval personnel from India and the United States will participate in exercise Malabar 2011, April 3-10.

    Malabar is a regularly scheduled bilateral naval field training exercise and has grown in scope and complexity over the years. Malabar 2011 is the latest in a continuing series of exercises conducted to advance multinational maritime relationships and mutual security issues.
