Cabras Marine Corporation (CMC) supported the U.S. Navy’s only forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan’s (CVN 76) arrival into Guam on Thursday. CMC’s Marine Operation Division provided Pilot & Tug services for the strike group’s safe navigation within our beautiful harbor (inbound & outbound) led by CMC’s Chief Pilot, Capt. Edgar Jabinigay, along with CMC’s hardworking and dedicated crew.
The USS Ronald Reagan participated in Valiant Shield 2022, a U.S.-only, biennial field training exercise (FTX) focused on integration of joint training in a multi-domain environment. “The core of our mission in the Indo-Pacific is maintaining and strengthening our partnerships and alliances in the region,” said Rear Adm. Michael Donnelly, commander, Task Force 70, Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 5. “Being able to properly execute a port visit is a vital part of that mission and something we have not been able to do for quite some time. I am extremely proud of our Sailors and immensely impressed by the people of Guam, without them this visit would not have been as successful as it was.” Units joining the strike group during the visit to Guam included the guided-missile destroyer USS Higgins (DDG 76) and guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam (CG 54).
