Sailors commit the ashes of Julius
CORAL SEA (July 15, 2017) Lt. j.g. Jason Burchell, right, a chaplain aboard the Navy's forward-deployed aircraft carrier, USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), salutes as Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class Richard Jojola, bottom, from Albuquerque, N.M., and Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class Tiffany Stiers, from Kansas City, Mo., commit the ashes of Julius "Harry" Frey during a burial-at-sea ceremony for Frey and his wife, Jerry, during Talisman Saber 2017. Frey, a World War II veteran, served aboard the aircraft carrier USS Lexington (CV 2) during the Battle of the Coral Sea and his ashes were laid to rest at the coordinates where the ship sank. Talisman Saber is a realistic and challenging exercise that brings service members closer and improves both U.S. and Australia's ability to work bilaterally and multilaterally, and prepares them to be poised to provide security regionally and globally.
