The USS Kearsarge (Amphibous Assault Ship) carries a marine detachment along with all their equipment (tanks, helo's, harriers, etc.) and deploys these units to the front, whereever that may be. All I know currently is that the Kearsarge set sail from Norfolk at 7AM this morning destined to the middle east. God Bless all aboard.
Just wanted to let all those aboard the Kearsarge know that we will be praying for a safe voyage and a safe journey home.
