Hawaii bound BRP Jose Rizal (FF150) arrives in Guam

The Philippine Navy’s (PN) modern and brand new missile-capable frigate BRP Jose Rizal (FF150) with an embarked shipborne helicopter detachment made its stop over at the Naval Base Guam, USA on August 02, on their way to join the annual Rim of the Pacific Exercise 2020 (RIMPAC2020) in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The PN said the layover in Guam was for refueling, re-provisioning and other health and bio-safety protocols in order to check the wellbeing of the approximately 120 sailors and aviators amid the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic. This serves also as the ship’s preparation on the upcoming naval exercise.

The Task Group 80.5 Commander and concurrent FF150 skipper, Capt. Jerry Garrido Jr, in his statement said that this historic journey, “will be a first for our newest frigate, as she join the world’s premier joint and combined maritime training exercise, I hope that my contingent would leverage its world class training facilities and will gladly impart it to our Navy back home.”

According to the Philippine Navy (PN), RIMPAC is a great avenue to train participating commanders, staff and forces in planning and execution of combined naval operations. It will give a unique training opportunity for the participating nations to enhance their proficiency to integrate into an international force and improve readiness to contribute to a wide-range of potential coalition operations.

The country’s participation to RIMPAC20 supports military diplomacy that fosters trust and confidence among allied countries. Its main purpose is the commitment in promoting multilateral cooperation leading to the strengthening of relationship and cooperation among regional and extra regional navies.
