FILE - In this Feb. 14, 2014 file photo, amphibious assault vehicles fire smoke screen during a military exercise Cobra Gold on Hat Yao beach in Chonburi province, Thailand, in which about 8,000 military personnel from U.S., Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Malaysia participated. U.S. military commander in the Pacific Adm. Harry Harris will be the highest-ranking American officer to attend the Cobra Gold military exercises in Thailand since a coup there three years ago. The U.S. had scaled down the 10-day drills since the 2014 coup, and Harris’ scheduled appearance at the Feb. 14 opening ceremony is seen as a sign that the U.S.-Thai military ties are on the mend.
