SOUTH CHINA SEA (June 6, 2017) French navy frigate FS Prairial (FS 731) transits the South China Sea on the starboard side of Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Sterett (DDG 104). Sterett is part of the Sterett-Dewey Surface Action Group and is the third deploying group operating under the command and control construct called 3rd Fleet Forward. U.S. 3rd Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of 3rd and 7th Fleets.
