PHUKET: The Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Boxer and its accompanying 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) dropped anchor off Patong for a scheduled port visit on Saturday (June 8 ) after concluding naval exercises in the Andaman Sea with the French navy aircraft carrier FS Charles de Gaulle and its escort ships last Friday.

 

Joining the USS Boxer and the FS Charles de Gaulle in conducting the drills late last week were French anti-submarine destroyer FS Latouche Treville, anti-submarine frigate FS Provence (D 652) and underway replenishment tanker FS Marne.

 

Building on the inaugural, multilateral exercise La Perouse from last month, the drills included formation sailing, combined flight operations and personnel transfers.

Stuck in the 80s. Just fyi thailand for a change has the aids epedemic in check. Free art to all who need it . Art will eventually wipe out aids as once the virus is treated and kept in treatment  the virus becomes undetectable . But not cured so passing the virus is not likely and even said impossible and at some point it will die out.
