PHUKET: The Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Boxer and its accompanying 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) dropped anchor off Patong for a scheduled port visit on Saturday (June 8 ) after concluding naval exercises in the Andaman Sea with the French navy aircraft carrier FS Charles de Gaulle and its escort ships last Friday.

 

Joining the USS Boxer and the FS Charles de Gaulle in conducting the drills late last week were French anti-submarine destroyer FS Latouche Treville, anti-submarine frigate FS Provence (D 652) and underway replenishment tanker FS Marne.
