USS Carter Hall’s Amsterdam Port Visit Bolsters U.S., Netherlands Partnership in NATO
AMSTERDAM – The Amphibious dock landing ship USS Carter Hall (LSD 50), in conjunction with the U.S. Consul in Amsterdam, hosted bilateral talks and a reception June 21, 2016.
“There is a kindred spirit of friendship and comradery between Netherlands and the United States of America. It’s all about security and prosperity in Europe. We sent a very strong message of unity and strength to our Baltic brothers and sisters. Right now, the United States Navy has 840,000 tons of grey-hulled American warships operating in the waters of Europe; the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea, that is more than we’ve ever had since 2003.”
- Vice Adm. James Foggo III, commander, U.S. 6th Fleet
