USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6)

The amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) steams underway with a Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) alongside in the Indian Ocean. The LCACs of Assault Craft Unit Five (ACU-5) are capable of transporting more supplies than helicopters in a single trip. The Bonhomme Richard Expeditionary Strike Group is currently operating in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Indonesia and Thailand in support of Operation Unified Assistance, the humanitarian operation effort in the wake of the Tsunami that struck South East Asia.
