USS Lassen concludes 10-year forward deployment Share this article Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Lassen concludes 10-year forward deployment January 6, 2016 The U.S. Navy’s Arleigh-Burke class guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen (DDG 82) left Yokosuka, Japan on January 6 after nearly 10 years in the Forward Deployed Naval Forces.The ship will conduct her last patrol in the western pacific before heading to her new homeport of Mayport, Florida.Lassen is one of the destroyers assigned to Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 15 and Carrier Strike Group 5.Commander Robert Francis, commanding officer of Lassen, said: “Lassen has provided support for DESRON and Carrier Strike Group 5 for a long time. I’m proud of the accomplishments of our Sailors that have served in 7th Fleet on such a great ship and I’m looking forward to what is to come after the homeport change.”DVIDS’ Rachel Jackson has put together an overview of the events that marked the ship’s 10-year deployment. View post tag: USS Lassen View post tag: US Navy Authorities In March of 2010, Lassen aided in the salvage and recovery of the Republic of Korea Ship (ROKS) Cheonan after it sank off the coast of the Republic of Korea. Later that year Lassen participated in the Invincible Spirit exercise conducted with the Republic of Korea Navy.Lassen was the first ship to arrive in the Leyte Gulf, Republic of the Philippines, in the fall of 2013 to aid in Operation Damayan after Typhoon Haiyan caused damage to the area. The ship also acted as a fueling station for the helicopter squadrons that aided the remote villages affected.In 2006, Lassen participated in her first Annual Exercise (AnnualEx) the largest bilateral exercise conducted in 7th Fleet, and continued the participation throughout her time in Japan. She has also participated Multi-Sail, a DESRON 15-led exercise designed to test interoperability and combat capabilities.In 2010 Lassen participated in a number of exercises including, Foal Eagle, a bilateral Field Training Exercise with the ROKN, Malabar, a trilateral exercise conducted with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force and the Indian Navy, Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT), a bilateral exercise, Invincible Spirit, and Keen Sword, bilateral exercises with the ROKN.During her last deployment in 2015, Lassen continued her participation in Foal Eagle, CARAT, Multi-Sail and AnnualEx 16. She also hosted a group of midshipmen from the Naval Academy during their summer program“I’m honored to take charge of this outstanding crew,” said Francis. “This upcoming tour before the homeport change will provide new opportunities for Lassen and her Sailors.”Along with continued participation in exercises, Lassen fosters relationships that demonstrate the commitment the United States has to the region through port visits to Donghae, Republic of Korea, Bali, Indonesia and Nagasaki, Japan, Melbourne, Australia, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and a number of others during her time in Seventh Fleet.Often, the Sailors aboard Lassen had the opportunity to participate in community relations (COMREL) projects such as during the multiple visits to Vladivostok, Russia, to foster relations with the Russian Navy, Sailors participated in celebration events and visits to a children’s medical ward and a center for at-risk youth.During her port visit in 2010 to Goa, India, Sailors renovated a primary school. The Sailors painted a number of classrooms and interacted with the staff and students.The Lassen Sailors were also treated to Korean barbecue by the ROK Sailors.Replacing Lassen is the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Barry (DDG 52). Barry will join 7th fleet as a Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) capable destroyer. She brings the newest Aegis combat system, Baseline 9.C, to 7th Fleet and the capability to fire all Vertical Launch System (VLS) ordnance, including the newest missiles, RIM-161 Standard Missile 3 (SM-3) and RIM-161 Standard Missile 6 (SM-6). Barry brings more advanced Link capabilities including Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) to aid interoperability and security in the Indo-Asia-Pacific.Lassen departs Yokosuka for Mayport with years of experience to use in her new homeport.

However, a local rescue spokesman said that 18 dead bodies were brought to hospital that included 13 civilians and five crew members. District commissioner Rawalpindi Ali Randhawa told the media that the incident occurred between 2:30 to 2:40 am when a small military plane which was on a training mission crashed in Rawalpindi. Rescue teams of 1122 and Pakistan Army immediately reached the site and started the rescue operation.

At least 12 people wee injured in the accident, officials said. The cause of the crash is yet to be ascertained and the rescue operation was completed by the morning, they said. The village where the plane crashed is located close to the posh area of Bahria Town. Soon after the crash, a massive fire broke out that engulfed several houses in the locality. Some of the locals have also uploaded pictures of the burning houses on social media. President Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed their grief over the loss of lives in the aircraft crash. Pakistan has a poor air safety track record, with plane and helicopter crashes occurring frequently over the years. In 2016, a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane carrying 48 people, including famous pop singer-turned-Islamic preacher Junaid Jamshed, his wife and Deputy Commissioner Chitral Osama Warraich, crashed and burst into flames in a hilly area near Abbottabad after facing engine problems. In 2012, a Bhoja Airline plane, a Boeing 737 carrying 121 passengers and six crew members, crashed near Islamabad just just before touchdown. The worst aviation tragedy on Pakistani soil came in July 2010 when an Airbus 321 passenger jet operated by the private airline Airblue crashed into hills overlooking Islamabad. The flight was coming from Karachi. All 152 people on board were killed in the accident, which occurred amid heavy rain and poor visibility. Another deadly civilian plane crash involving a Pakistani jet occurred in 1992 when a PIA Airbus A300 crashed into a cloud-covered hillside on its approach to the Nepalese capital Kathmandu, killing 167 people.
EDMONTON — A fight over which horse won a Canadian Derby race in Edmonton two years ago is to be heard in court this week.Queen’s Bench Justice June Ross is to look at the results of the Aug. 19, 2017, race at Northland’s Park.Chief Know It All was originally declared the winner despite a complaint from the owner of another horse it allegedly fouled.Ten months later, the Horse Racing Appeal Tribunal disqualified Chief Know It All and named two other horses, Double Bear and Trooper John, as co-winners.The Tribunal ruled Chief Know It All made contact with another horse and altered the outcome of the race.Kent Verlik, chief executive officer of Horse Racing Alberta, says it is the second time in the history of the Canadian Derby that a panel of racing judges intervened following a complaint.“Our stewards didn’t think it impacted the race, so it was kind of a non-event,” said Verlik. “But in appeal, the tribunal overturned the decision of the stewards and then they revised the placing as a result.”The case echoes last weekend’s surprising Kentucky Derby.Maximum Security became the first Kentucky Derby winner ever to be disqualified for interference. Country House, a 65-1 long shot, was subsequently named champion.The Canadian Press
