Aussie Navy visits the "Big Apple"

Two Australian ships and more than 400 sailors will visit Manhattan as part of a six month international deployment. The ships will berth in New York from July 19-22 to reciprocate the 2008 Great White Fleet centennial celebrations, when the USS Shoup and the USS John S McCain visited Australian shores. Australia is the only country whose forces have served together with the United States in every major conflict of the past 100 years including World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq.
