US navy ship arrived to Sihanoukville

A US navy ship arrived to Sihanoukville this weekend to celebrate military parades with the Royal Cambodian Army in the international sea port. The USS ESSEX touched the Cambodian coast during the morning of February 26 and was welcomed by high military authorities of the country. It will remain in Cambodian waters until March 2. Commander Ouck Seiha said to the press that it belongs to the agreements of friendship with the US military. CMDR Ly, the acting liaison officer between the US Navy and RCAF US, said that both navies will perform military games at the Sihanoukville Bay. US and Cambodia have strengthened relations of friendship in the last decades, after the troublesome times of war in the 1970s. The government of Richard Nixon ordered a heavy bombing over the northern Cambodian territory with the aim to stop the advance of the Vietcom. Damages over the Cambodian territory and its population due to such bombing in the 1970s are incalculable.

  1. the US ship was not the SES KE, as reported by that ignorant ass of Chhin Sieng, it was the USS ESSEX.

    The ship was not commanded by any American-Cambodian naval officer, Mr. Sieng has been confused by the fact that during the previous call of an US Navy ship in Sihanoukville, a missile frigate was commanded by an American Lieutnant Commander of Khmer descent.

    CMDR Ly was the acting liaison officer between the US Navy and RCAF

  2. I believe they are also engaged in medical welfare and treatment work during their stay, which is most welcome. A country which has much giving to the peasants of a country who have little. Direct aid like this is wonderful.
