110404-N-DM338-403 PACIFIC OCEAN (April 04, 2011) – Sailors aboard the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force helicopter destroyer JDS Hyuga (DDH 181) wave the American and Japanese flags as a sign of friendship during a pass and review with the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76). Pass and review is a maritime tradition conducted by foreign nation ships to render honors to each other. Ronald Reagan is operating off the coastline of Japan to provide disaster relief and humanitarian assistance as directed in support of Operation Tomodachi.
