USS Boxer Amphibious Ready Group’s Friday Deployment from San Diego

As announced by the U.S. Navy, the amphibious ready group led by USS Boxer deployed from San Diego on Friday. The USS Boxer left Naval Station San Diego on Friday at 8 a.m. for the Western Pacific and Middle East.

The amphibious ready group consists of the 847-foot amphibious assault ship USS Boxer, the 684-foot amphibious transport dock USS New Orleans, and the 610-foot amphibious dock landing ship USS Harpers Ferry.

Aboard the ships, there will be approximately 2,400 Marines from the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit stationed at Camp Pendleton. According to the U.S. Navy, the amphibious ready group will focus on maritime and theater security.

Also stated by the Navy, all sailors and Marines will be prepared for any amphibious assault, Special Forces operations, humanitarian missions and non-combatant operations if needed.

According to military.com, the USS Boxer will be creating a piece of history during this deployment by becoming the first Naval vessel from the west coast to deploy with the MV-22 Osprey aircraft.

Commander of the Amphibious Squadron 1 and the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group shared some inspiration regarding this phenomenon of a deployment. Captain Malcom Potts stated, “We’ve had a very rigorous training cycle to prepare us to execute any mission when called upon. I am awed and impressed by the ingenuity, creativity, and industriousness of the 4,200 dedicated sailors and Marines that serve on our ships.”

The USS Boxer-led amphibious ready group is motivated to deploy and protect our nation, and their continual achievements showcase their extraordinary talents.

San Diego Shipyards Receive Large Naval Repair Contracts

Although San Diego’s shipyards have experienced a downturn in their work throughout the sequestration, these shipyards have seen things shift into a more positive direction within the last six months.

The U.S. Navy was forced to reduce the amount, which would be spent for ship repairs and maintenance. Luckily, more money has been able to free itself, allotting the Navy with much more freedom to continue with ship repairs.

The recipients of these Naval ship repairs are the local shipyards BAE Systems San Diego Ship Repair as well as General Dynamics-NASSCO.

BAE Systems was awarded $38.6 million to work on the USS Benfold, San Diego’s Naval destroyer with special missile defense equipment. This will mark a quick return to the shipyard seeing as the 505-foot ship was at BAE Systems just two years earlier for a major overhaul. This maintenance contract will focus on improving combat systems.

Next door to BAE Systems is General Dynamics-NASSCO, another large shipyard in San Diego. General Dynamics-NASSCO has been awarded $13 million from the U.S. Navy to maintain and enhance the 33-year-old USS Peleliu. The amphibious assault ship Peleliu is based in San Diego and is one of the oldest large ships in the U.S. Navy.

Both of these ships are in for minor overhauls consisting of improvements and enhancements. BAE Systems San Diego Ship Repair and General Dynamics-NASSCO are both pleased to have the opportunity to repair these heroic Naval ships.
