NPO Jonathon M. Lare Deployed To Malaysia

NPO Jonathon M. Lare Deployed To Malaysia

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Jonathon M. Lare, son of Mary E. and Donald E. Hamernick of Hallstead, Pa., and his fellow shipmates assigned to the guided-missile frigate USS Curts made a five-day port visit to Lumut, Malaysia while on a scheduled deployment as part of the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group.

The port visit gave Lare's unit a chance to participate in a community relations project. Some Sailors aided in the preservation of Pusat Jagaan Warga Tua School. The school caters to special-needs students from age three to 34, and teaches them life skills and independent living.

Lare's unit also interacted with the Royal Malaysian Navy with friendly matches of both soccer and volleyball. A small series of naval exercises were conducted in port and underway to help build the cohesiveness of the Malaysian and US Navy. Exchanges of both officer and enlisted personnel between the US and Malay ships were also done to give sailors the chance to experience the customs and culture of a foreign ship while underway. Guided-missile frigates like Curts are anti-submarine warfare combatants for amphibious expeditionary forces, underway replenishment groups and merchant convoys.

Lare joined the Navy in May, 2006.
