America, lead ship of the America Amphibious Ready Group, is operating in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations. The group, according to a press release from the U.S. Navy, is working “to enhance interoperability with allies and partners, and serve as a ready response force to defend peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region.” (U.S. Navy photo/Specialist 2nd Class Walter Estrada)
