Japan's No. 2 official, Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera, did some homework at the University of Nebraska at Omaha on Wednesday in advance of his meeting later this week with U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

Onodera toured the university, checked out some of its programs and learned more about the school where Hagel got his bachelor's degree in 1971.

One of the programs of interest to Onodera was a partnership between UNO and the U.S. Strategic Command to train civilians for leadership positions in the military.

On Friday, Hagel and Onodera will meet at the Pentagon to discuss a range of issues involving the U.S. and Japan, including Japan's recent announcement on collective self-defense and ongoing efforts to strengthen the alliance among the U.S. and Japan and key neighbors in the region, South Korea and Australia.
