This photo was taken when we spent a month on exercise working with US amphibious forces and a recon unit. I had just transferred from USS Essex to USS Denver on the Super Stallion Helicopter, which you see in the pictured at the rear of the flight deck. We bounced off the deck a few times before that landing which always keeps you on your toes.
We were stationed on USS Denver throughout the exercise and were mainly diving through the night doing beach clearances and recon for the amphibious forces. It was a solid months work but it’s always good to work with our US allies.
