ABOARD USS VANDEGRIFT, At Sea (NNS) -- USS Vandegrift (FFG 48) participated in a passing exercise (PASSEX) with the Russian Federation navy in the Pacific Ocean, Nov. 9.

Two Russian ships, Pechenga (AOR) and Marshal Shaposhnikov (DD 543), performed several evolutions with Vandegrift, including a light signal flashing and flag hoisting exchange, followed by a leapfrog exercise, where ships practice real time maneuvering.

Signalman 2nd Class (SW) Nathan Stalker said the exercise was “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

“It was my first time seeing a Russian ship, and I was honored to be a participant in the events,” he said.

During the exercise, Vandegrift hosted four Russian Sailors, Capt. 1st Rank Mikhail Ivanovich Sazhaev, Capt. 1st Rank Ivan Ivanovich Gavriev, Lt. Yeugeni Olegovich Kiselyov and Lt. Konstantin Yurevich Shatsrin. Sazhaev said this was his second exercise with the U.S Navy.

“The maneuvering between the two ships were beneficial and understanding by both navies,” he said. “This exercise was good for both U.S. and Russian Sailors. Our country wants to continue presence on the high seas with American ships, and may we meet only as friends.”

Vandegrift Sailors Lt. Greg Morris, Lt. Ken Ehresman, Chief Quartermaster (SW/AW) Bradley Riegel and Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class (SW) Tom Jeno boarded Shaposhnikov.

“The Russian Sailors were friendly and welcomed us accordingly,” Jeno said. “It was an awesome experience for me to be chosen to represent our country as a guest on board the Russian ship.”

“It was a great experience for me and the Vandegrift Sailors,” said Vandegrift commanding officer, Cmdr. Rich Rogers. “This exercise helps our relationship and continues to develop into a brighter future between the U.S. and Russia.”
