SOUTH CHINA SEA - USS Blue Ridge (LCC 19) and Philippine Navy frigate BRP Ramon Alcaraz (FF 16) sailed together, March 19, following the U.S. 7th Fleet flagship's port visit to Manila.

The ships conducted routine drills to strengthen both navies’ ability to communicate, maneuver and operate together. During the port visit, 7th Fleet staff members held talks with Philippine Navy counterparts. The U.S. and Philippine navies routinely conduct engagements, exercises and port visits like this and have done so for decades.

"I couldn't be prouder of the relationships we've built with our allies in the Philippines," said Capt. Eric Anduze, Blue Ridge's commanding officer. "Having the opportunity to work closely with them at sea only strengthens our crew's ability to operate in the Indo-Pacific."

Exercises like MTA Sama Sama, Balikatan, SEACAT and RIMPAC enhance maritime cooperation between both navies, while annual missions like Pacific Partnership bolster humanitarian assistance disaster relief (HA/DR) capabilities.

Blue Ridge recently completed a nearly two-year extended dry-dock selected restricted availability period and numerous certifications, to ensure she remains ready to provide security in the Indo-Pacific region. Blue Ridge is commanded by Capt. Eric Anduze and serves under Commander, Expeditionary Strike Group 7/Task Force 76, the Navy's only forward-deployed amphibious force.

8 Photos · Updated about a day ago

Phil-Indo Navies Patrol the Common Border NSFA, Panacan, Davao City - The Philippine Navy and Indonesian Navy patrol ships are currently conducting a bilateral Coordinated Patrol in the common border of the Republic of the Philippines and Republic of Indonesia along the Celebes Sea. The Border Coordinated Patrol, which aimed at securing the common border between the two countries, curtail maritime crimes and stop sea crimes including smuggling and piracy, was formally opened on May 2 at the Pinnacle Hotel, Davao City.

The Philippines and the Republic of Indonesia have increased this year’s coordinated border patrol activities to curb the smuggling and human trafficking at the high seas in both countries. The increase of patrols is also aimed at increasing the interoperability and capability of ensuring a safe and secure common maritime border of both countries.

The send-off ceremony on May 4, 2019, signals the start of the first leg of the activities wherein the Philippine Coast Guard joined and sends its contingent during the initial phase of the first leg. The first leg is expected to conclude on May 10, 2019, after reaching their final point in Indonesian waters. The second and third leg of the activities which will be staged mid of this year will focus more on maritime and security patrol activities, while the fourth leg will be a combination of exercises and border patrol activities. The coordinated patrol between the two countries started in 1975 when the Philippines and Indonesia signed the Border Patrol and Border Crossing Agreements, aimed at improving maritime security cooperation.

The Filipino fishermen, who were abandoned by a Chinese vessel after sinking their boat near Reed Bank last Sunday, were on their way home at the time this story was posted.

They were transferred Friday to BRP Tausug from BRP Ramon Alcaraz. Tausug will bring the fishermen home to relatives waiting at the San Jose port in Occidental Mindoro.
