USS Gonzales Returns to Norfolk

first_img Guided-missile destroyer USS Gonzalez (DDG 66) returned to its Naval Station Norfolk homeport Aug. 6, marking completion of a seven-month deployment.In January, Gonzalez deployed to the U.S. 6th Fleet Area of Responsibility to support maritime security operations and promote theater security cooperation efforts.While in 6th Fleet, the crew participated in a bilateral military-to-military visit board search and seizure training exercise with the Tanzania People’s Defense Force. In addition to practicing core skills, the event also served as an opportunity to grow and foster partnership and cooperation between the two navies.“Events like this one with the Tanzanians advanced the Navy’s goals of enhancing interoperability among coalition partners and provided valuable training for the crew,” said Lt. Cmdr. Kyle Gantt, Gonzalez’s executive officer.“Our vessel board search and seizure exercise was an excellent opportunity to interact with one of our East African partners,” he continued. “Not only were we able to build our technical and tactical skills, we furthered Sailor relationships and enhanced maritime partnership in the AOR [area of responsibility] –certainly time well spent.”Throughout the seven-month deployment, Gonzalez made port visits in the Mediterranean Sea including Augusta Bay, Sicily, and Haifa, Israel, before transiting the Suez Canal to conduct maritime security operations in the Indian Ocean.“Spending 67 and 91 consecutive days at sea between port visits illustrates the focus and dedication to mission accomplishment our crew was able to sustain over seven months,” said Chief Fire Controlman (Select) Daniel Goehner. “We really pushed the envelope of our own endurance.”Commissioned in 1996, Gonzalez is named for Marine Corps Sgt. Alfredo Gonzalez. He received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his leadership in the Battle of Hue City, where he was killed protecting the members of his platoon.[mappress]Press Release, August 8, 2013 View post tag: Defence Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Gonzales Returns to Norfolk View post tag: Gonzales View post tag: Defense View post tag: Naval USS Gonzales Returns to Norfolk View post tag: USS View post tag: Navy View post tag: Norfolk Training & Education Share this article View post tag: Returns View post tag: News by topic August 8, 2013last_img read more

Man U offers De Gea £290k weekly deal

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Manchester United are close to agreeing a new deal with goalkeeper David de Gea that will see him earn wage parity with Paul Pogba, according to The Guardian. The 28-year-old Spaniard’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the current season, with several clubs interested in his services. However, the new proposal will see De Gea earn £290,000 a week to reach parity with the club’s record signing Paul Pogba. De Gea joined the Old Trafford club in 2011 and has made 366 appearances, winning the Premier League in 2013, plus one FA Cup, one League Cup and one Europa League title. One of boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s main tasks was to secure the futures of key players within the squad. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are among those to recently pen new deals, and the club hierarchy believe De Gea will be the next to sign. The deal would also restore the market value of a player who was entering the final nine months of his existing deal and ensure he cannot leave for free. De Gea had previously attracted strong interest from Real Madrid, but their signing of Thibaut Courtois last summer has ended hopes of him joining the rivals of boyhood club Atletico Madrid.Tags: David De GeaManchester UnitedPaul PogbaThe Guardianlast_img read more

NFL round-up: Cam Newton raises clenched fist as Panthers shock Patriots

first_imgnews The Carolina Panthers pulled off their biggest win of the season – and inflicted another defeat on the New England Patriots on Sunday – as Cam Newton took control of the game.Newton threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as the Panthers held off a late Patriots rally to win a thrilling contest 33-30. Newton also caused a stir for non-football reasons as he raised a clenched fist after scoring the 50th rushing touchdown of his career. Earlier in the week, the quarterback said he wanted to send a message of unity after Donald Trump’s attack on NFL players who chose to protest during the national anthem.“People feeling oppressed and people that are rich looking down on other people, you don’t get nowhere with that,” said Newton. “We all are created equal.” Share on Pinterest NFL protests drop off but fans boo Ravens and Jags for kneeling before anthem Share on WhatsApp NFL US sports Topics Share on Twitter Cam Newton Share via Email Share on Facebookcenter_img Share on Messenger Read more Carolina Panthers On Sunday, Newton picked apart the Patriots with ease as the Super Bowl champions’ defense struggled again: they have now conceded more points than any other team in the NFL this season. They now have the same record (2-2) as their AFC East rivals the New York Jets, who some predicted would fail to win a game this season. The Bills lead the division with a 3-1 record.In Sunday’s other early kick-offs, Deshaun Watson had the best game of his young career as he threw four touchdowns in the Houston Texans’ 57-14 thrashing of the Tennessee Titans. Andy Dalton also had four touchdown passes as the Bengals beat the winless Cleveland Browns 31-7. There were also wins for the Detroit Lions over the Minnesota Vikings and the Buffalo Bills over the Atlanta Falcons. The Jets beat the Jaguars 23-20 thanks to an overtime field goal.The Los Angeles Rams continued their resurgence with a comeback 35-30 win against the Dallas Cowboys, while the Pittsburgh Steelers beat their AFC North rivals 26-9.In the later kickoffs, the Arizona Cardinals had an overtime touchdown to thank for their victory over the San Francisco 49ers, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ensured the New York Giants remain winless. The Denver Broncos beat the Oakland Raiders, and the Philadelphia Eagles topped the 0-4 Chargers.The Seattle Seahawks often start the season slowly and they were sluggish in the first half of their Sunday Night Football match-up with the Indianapolis Colts, as they trailed 15-10. But a big third quarter, in which they piled on 22 points, helped them to a 46-18 victory. Russell Wilson was picked off twice but also threw for two touchdowns and ran in another.Earlier the New Orleans Saints had beaten the struggling Miami Dolphins 20-0 in a poor game at Wembley.
