Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus eats dinner with Marines and Sailors with Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force South and the future amphibious assault ship USS America (LHA 6) in the mess deck aboard the ship, Aug. 19, 2014. The dinner with the Marines and Sailors allowed for topics of interest to be discussed on a personal level. In addition to dinner, Mabus toured the ship, held an all-hands call to address the crew and attended an ice cream social. Visits like this remind the Marines and Sailors with America and the SPMAGTF of the significance of the work they are doing. SPMAGTF-South is embarked aboard America in support of her maiden transit, “America Visits the Americas.” Through partner-nation activities, theater security events and key leader engagements, the transit aims to demonstrate the flexibility, utility and unparalleled expeditionary capability the Navy-Marine Corps team provides our nation and partners.
