ATLANTIC OCEAN (Jan. 27, 2019) Spanish marines from the Alvaro de Bazan-class Spanish navy frigate ESPS Mendez Nñez (F 104) conduct a boarding exercise aboard the fleet replenishment oiler USNS Leroy Grumman (T-AO 195). Mendez Nñez is underway and conducting group exercises as part of Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 12. CSG-12 is underway conducting Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX). 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 warfighting force for the Navy and the nation.
