The US Navy is sending its most powerful assault ship to the Pacific


Recommended Posts

The US Navy announced last week that it would bring increased strike power to US forces in Pacific with a new deployment.

The USS America — a new, more capable amphibious assault ship able to deploy with a heavier configuration of F-35B Joint Strike Fighters than its predecessors and serve as a light aircraft carrier — is joining the US 7th Fleet's forward-deployed naval forces at Fleet Activities Yokosuka in Sasebo, Japan. https://www.businessinsider.com/the-us-navy-is-sending-its-most-powerful-assault-ship-to-the-pacific-2019-5

      WASHINGTON — A federal judge revoked the pretrial release for a Navy reservist awaiting trial on charges stemming from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot last week following his conviction in Virginia for possessing unregistered silencers. U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden ordered Hatchet Speed, of McLean, Virginia, back into custody on Friday after a jury in the Eastern District of Virginia convicted him earlier this month of possessing multiple silencers disguised to look like cleaning supplies.
