“I am looking to meet a lot of really cool, nice people and some really good trade knowledge working alongside a lot of really good subs.”

Lt. Eun Hee Lee

“I believe strongly (that) maritime power is the source (of) national growth. I want to experience the know-how and the cultures of different navies and also to apply the lessons to our (Republic of Korea) navy’s creativity.”

“What I look to take away from RIMPAC (are) friendships that we make during this exercise, and on my ship to progress my career.”

“I want to bring as much expertise from the merchant navy (as I can). I want to bring this expertise into RIMPAC and support the commander’s mission, and my fellow team members.”

“I’m looking forward to working with other navies to enhance my knowledge as a C2 operator definitely getting to know more people from other navies, forging friendships with them.”

“I’m excited to meet other sailors from different countries and sharing experiences. Also get better training and speak English, reinforce my navigation skills and discover Hawaii.”
