USS Bonhomme Richard Arrives in Brisbane, Australia

USS Bonhomme Richard Arrives in Brisbane, Australia

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Matthew M. Bradley, USS Bonhomme Richard Public Affairs
BRISBANE, Australia (NNS) -- The forward-deployed amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) and embarked 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) arrived in Brisbane Australia July 9, for a scheduled port visit.

The Bonhomme Richard Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) is in Australia to participate in the biennial combined-joint exercise Talisman Saber.

During the visit Bonhomme Richard Sailors and Marines will participate in various community service projects and sporting events, as well as enjoy the sites and hospitality of this city of two million people located in the Southeastern part of Queensland.

"Australia has long been a favorite port visit for American Sailors and Marines," said USS Bonhomme Richard Commanding Officer Capt. Daniel Dusek. "This visit provides the opportunity to showcase this fine ship to one of our closest allies, and to demonstrate the United States commitment to the region."

While in port, Bonhomme Richard and the 31st MEU will conduct a bio-security inspection to ensure they are operating in an environmentally responsible manner and in full accordance with Australian laws.

The inspection is the second of a two-part inspection that entails full accountability for all food items, soil, bacteria, plant life and any other organisms that could damage the Australian ecosystem. The first part of the inspection took place in Okinawa, Japan prior to Bonhomme Richard's departure.

The Bonhomme Richard ARG is commanded by Capt. Cathal O'Connor, commodore, Amphibious Squadron (PHIBRON) 11 and reports to the Commander, Amphibious Force 7th Fleet, Rear Adm. Jeffrey A. Harley, headquartered in White Beach, Okinawa, Japan.

Large Number Of Americans Support Secession


According to new polling data many Americans still recognize the right of secession.  Is it any wonder, as our government continues to lose the little bit of legitimacy it had left, seeing as we have constant spying on and imprisonment of innocent Americans, a militarized law enforcement, and a federal government that believes it is not accountable to the Constitution or the people who elected them? 

How can you have a stable republic if those in authority can chose which laws they will follow, while at the same time regulating every aspect of our businesses and our lives?  Who can honestly tell their children they are as free as they were growing up?  One cannot even receive a single day's respite while viewing the news where some innocent American is not being charged or intimidated unjustly or children facing charges for the shirts they chose to wear to school.  Is there no common sense left in the American people?

The truth is that very little of our founding fathers' vision for our republic remains. 

Most people are just willing to accept any law and regulation, no matter how unconstitutional and have become so uninformed and disinterested as to be little more that puppets for the politicians to manipulate.  After all, how can you defend your rights if you never take the time to learn what they are?  I don't mean what the establishment claims our rights are.  We are blessed with a vast amount of information written directly by our founding fathers themselves.  No manipulation or editing when you read from themselves exactly what their dream for America was. 

Even in Thomas Jefferson's day we had big government statists to deal with, like Alexander Hamilton.  So the political struggle for freedom is never ending.

My encouragement to you is an involved and informed citizenry can affect substantial restoration to this republic.  But, if people are too lazy to get involved then secession may be in our future.

USS Gravely Holds Change of Command Ceremony

From Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa, Commander, U.S. 6th Fleet Public Affairs
SOUDA BAY, Greece (NNS) -- Guided-missile destroyer USS Gravely (DDG 107) held a change of command ceremony aboard the ship midway through its maiden deployment, July 7.

Cmdr. Kevin Kennedy relieved Cmdr. David Dry.

Dry asked the crew to continue their excellence under the new leadership. "I ask that you continue to support each other, and continue to look out for each other because you are what makes Gravely special," said Dry. "[Gravely] is different because of her crew. I always say look out for yourselves and your shipmates."

Command Master Chief Yves Raynaud presented Dry with the Meritorious Service Medal Award in recognition of his accomplishments while commanding the Gravely.
After the award presentation, Kennedy spoke to the crew about the opportunity to lead them during their deployment.

"I stand here today in awe of USS Gravely and especially of her crew," said Kennedy. "I know I am extremely lucky to be here today. I owe a tremendous gratitude to Captain Dry for his tireless efforts."
Dry's next assignment will be instructing prospective commanding officers on fundamentals of engineering and maintenance at Surface Warfare Officer School in Newport, R.I.

Gravely, homeported in Norfolk, Va., is on a scheduled deployment supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the 6th Fleet Area of Responsibility.
