PACIFIC OCEAN (Nov. 28, 2018)


In a show of strong partnership, the amphibious transport dock ship USS Somerset (LPD 25), the guided-missile destroyer USS Wayne E Meyer (DDG 108), the Royal Navy frigate HMS Montrose (F236) and the Chilean navy frigates CNS Prat (FF 07) and CNS Condell (FF 06) transit in formation during a multination photo exercise. Each nation will be participating in the Chilean Navy’s EXPONAVAL 2018 in Valparaiso, Chile in December. In addition, this year also marks the 200th Anniversary of the Chilean Navy’s establishment. Somerset and Wayne E. Meyer are part of LCG-1, which is deployed in support of the Enduring Promise Initiative to reaffirm U.S. Southern Command’s longstanding commitment to the nations of the Western Hemisphere.
