MAYPORT, Fla. (Nov. 6, 2012) Construction workers assemble bleachers on the flight deck of the multipurpose amphibious assault ship USS Bataan (LHD 5). The ship is installing a basketball court for the Navy-Marine Corps Classic basketball game scheduled for Nov. 9 between the University of Florida and Georgetown University at Naval Station Mayport. The Navy-Marine Corps Classic is hosted by the city of Jacksonville, which along with its surrounding communities has a long tradition of supporting Sailors and Marines. The game honors veterans, active and reserve service members, and military families. America's away team, the Navy and Marine Corps are reliable, flexible, and ready to respond worldwide on, above and below the sea as well ashore.
