Quote
SAN FERNANDO LA UNION, Philippines (NNS) -- A small ceremony at the naval base here, Aug. 21, marked the close of the Philippines phase of exercise Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT).

During the week-long final phase of the 2006 CARAT exercise series, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) personnel interfaced with U.S. Sailors and Coast Guardsmen in a wide array of training scenarios designed to build skills directly applicable to the combat of seaborne terrorism threats and transnational crimes at sea.

Exercise CARAT is a sequential, bilateral series of exercises with the Southeast Asia nations of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand designed to enhance regional cooperation, promote understanding and develop operational readiness.

The U.S. CARAT task group was led by Collins, Commander Destroyer Squadron 1. Collins embarked aboard Tortuga, which operates from Sasebo, Japan, as part of the 7th Fleet's Forward Deployed Naval Forces. Collins' staff is based in San Diego. Besides Tortuga, the other CARAT task group ships included USS Hopper (DDG 70), USS Crommelin (FFG 37), USS Salvor (ARS 52) and the USCGC Sherman (WHEC 720). Hopper, Crommelin and Salvor are homeported in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Sherman is homeported in Alameda, Calif.

Philippine Navy CARAT task group ships included BRP Apolinario Mabini (PS 36), BRP Heracleo Alano (PG 376), BRP Teotimo Figuracion (PG 389) and BRP Bacolod City (LC 550).
