Daniel P. Duhan, commanding officer of Ashland, said:Ashland is underway for amphibious integration training prior to participating in bilateral exercises later this summer. It is important to conduct this training for both the Sailors and Marines because of the amount of new personnel we have and also because of the complexity of the missions that we support.Amphibious operations are a dynamic team sport, requiring a lot of practice and close coordination. Both Marines and Sailors have completed training in launch and recovery of several types of amphibious vehicles: amphibious assault vehicles (AAVs), landing craft air cushions (LCACs) and combat rubber raiding craft (CRRCs).Ashland is homeported in Sasebo, Japan, and is a part of the Bonhomme Richard Expeditionary Strike Group.Image: US Navy View post tag: Marines Share this articlelast_img read more

first_imgOn Thursday, The Black Keys released a brand new single, “Lo/Hi”. The song’s surprise arrival marks the first official release from the duo since their 2014 album, Turn Blue. The new track, released via Nonesuch, was written by Pat Carney and Dan Auerbach, with production credited to The Black Keys. Despite having kept busy with separate projects over the last several years, it takes only a few seconds for the duo’s garage rock mastery to shine through on the new track. It’s just like they never left…Give the new song a listen below:The Black Keys – “Lo/Hi”[Video: The Black Keys]While this is the first new release from Auerbach and Carney as “The Black Keys” in half a decade, the two have kept plenty busy with various other projects. In the time since Turn Blue, Auerbach has released a solo album, 2017’s Waiting on a Song, and one with The Arcs, 2015’s Yours, Dreamily,. He also launched his own Easy Eye Sound label/studio and produced and collaborated with various other artists, including co-writing a track on The Marcus King Band‘s recent album, Carolina Confessions. Patrick Carney has also kept himself busy during The Black Keys’ hiatus, producing various artists and collaborating with Michelle Branch on material for the Bojack Horesman soundtrack (a show for which he also wrote the opening theme). Carney also recently announced his debut album with a new project, Sad Planets, due out on April 19th.Hopefully, this new track’s release means that more music from The Black Keys (and hopefully some tour dates) are on the way. For now, we can be happy to rock out to a great new song from the long-lost duo.last_img read more
