    America Prepares to Visit Colombia on Maiden Transit



    From USS America Public Affairs

    CARIBBEAN SEA (NNS) -- The future amphibious assault ship USS America (LHA 6) will conduct a port visit to Cartagena, Colombia on July 17.

    During the visit, the ship's military and civilian crew will have the opportunity to experience the rich culture of this host nation and serve as goodwill ambassadors.

    Additionally many of America's Sailors and Marines will have the chance to volunteer for enhancement projects at local schools, orphanages and other facilities.

    "The Sailors and Marines aboard USS America have worked hard to get to this point and are looking forward to visiting Colombia," said Capt. Robert A. Hall Jr., America's commanding officer. "This will be our first port during the ship's 'America Visits the Americas' transit and the crew and I are excited to enjoy the rich culture of the country."

    The ship will visit Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Peru as well as Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba while also conducting engagements with other valued partners in the area of responsibility. These nations are valued friends and partners and the visits to these ports will enhance these partnerships.

    America is the first ship of its class, replacing the Tawara-class of amphibious assault ships. As the next generation "big-deck" amphibious ship, America is optimized for aviation, capable of supporting current and future aircraft such as the tilt-rotor MV-22 Osprey and F-35B Joint Strike Fighter. The ship is scheduled to be commissioned Oct. 11 in San Francisco.

    U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command / U.S. 4th Fleet and U.S. Marine Forces South support U.S. Southern Command's joint and combined military operations by employing maritime forces in cooperative maritime security operations in order to maintain access, enhance interoperability, and build enduring partnerships in order to enhance regional security and promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the Caribbean, Central and South American regions.

    HMS Illustrious returns home for the last time

    By PAUL HARRIS

    They nicknamed her Lusty, the grand old dame of the sea. She was fast in her day, shapely, ever eager to serve.

    But yesterday(07.22.2014), after 32 years as a loyal sweetheart of the Royal Navy, HMS Illustrious sailed slowly into an uncertain future.

    The long-outdated warship came home to Portsmouth for the last time – an aircraft carrier with no aircraft; a ship without a mission. What they couldn’t take away from one of Britain’s most celebrated warships, however, was her proud history.

    Illustrious is the last survivor of the Royal Navy’s trio of celebrated aircraft carriers, alongside HMS Ark Royal and Invincible. And the question on the lips of those who applauded, waved Union flags or wept yesterday was universal. What now for dear old Lusty?

    The Ministry of Defence must decide whether to preserve her for the nation she served or send her to her doom in the wake of her sister ships. Both endured the humiliation of being towed to a scrap yard in Turkey to be converted into tin cans and razor blades.

    It’s a fair guess that nobody who turned out yesterday to pay their respects – not even those bronzed bathers cooling down in the shallows off Portsmouth’s ‘hot rocks’ shingle beach as Illustrious passed by – would wish her such an undignified end.

    Elsewhere glowing tributes were paid to a warship that had sailed the equivalent of 36 times around the equator, not counting the final few hundred yards under tow into Pompey yesterday.

    A formal decommissioning ceremony is due to be held later this year, and Vice Admiral Sir Philip Jones, the Navy’s fleet commander, promised that her departure would be marked ‘with all the pride she deserves’. Ideas are now being invited on how best to preserve her legacy. One plan is to turn her into a UK-based floating museum, a proposal for which private bids are being canvassed.




















    The band of The Royal Marines perform next to HMS Illustrious as she sails into her home port of Portsmouth for the final time
