Message from Chief of Staff

 Regarding the JGSDF helicopter crashes occurred on Monday, February 5th, 2018, I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to those who were affected in the accident and the residents in the area, and to send my deepest condolences to the fallen personnel.
 In light of the mishap, we once again shared determination to engage in our missions to make sure any accidents will never occur. We will double check our education and knowledge responding to any types of risk including emergency measures in conducting flight work. In performing maintenance on aircraft, we will also review our education and knowledge on reliable quality inspection procedure. We are committed to our best efforts to prevent accidents from occurring.
I would like to express my sincerest appreciation for giving your continued support and understanding to the JMSDF. I hope all of you visiting the website are taking good care of yourselves in this cold weather.  I visited the MSDF Officer Candidate School located in Etajima-City, Hiroshima on Friday, February 2nd 2018 to attend the graduation ceremony for the 51st General Line Officer Candidate Course (prior enlisted personnel) and the send-off ceremony.
 The cadets started the 51st General Line Officer Candidate Course (prior enlisted personnel) on June 1st 2017 after getting through the screening process among enlisted personnel. In the strict disciplinary environment, they trained self-discipline, worked together with classmates, and finally met all the requirements to graduate. I can tell that they will play leading roles in their new endeavors, sending my best wishes for their future successes.
 The Overseas Training Cruise that the new graduates are on board made a goodwill visit to Muara, Brunei between Sunday, 11th to Wednesday, 14th of February developing mutual understanding and trusting relationship with Royal Brunei Navy. (Next port visit is scheduled in Bangkok, Thailand.)  JMSDF is committed to contributing to the defense of our country through carrying out adequate human resources development to maintain security and stability of maritime environment in the Asia Pacific region including countries and regions surrounding Japan and to ensure free and open seas.
We would like to kindly ask for your continued understanding and support to the JMSDF.
