Long Island, NY - February 15, 2019 - Fire Controlman (Aegis) 2nd Class Brian Kelley, from Long Island, N.Y., recently participated in visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) operations training aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Gonzalez (DDG 66). 
Gonzalez conducted composite training unit exercises (COMPTUEX) with Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 12. The components of CSG 12 embody a "team-of-teams" concept, combining advanced surface, air, and systems assets to create and sustain operational capability. This enables them to prepare for and conduct global operations, have effective and lasting command and control, and demonstrate dedication and commitment to becoming the strongest war fighting force for the Navy and for the nation.
