Amazing weekend at Valente Brothers. On Saturday Valente Brothers Professors and Instructors had the honor of teaching the crew of the Navy ship USS Philippine Sea and on Sunday almost one hundred Valente Brothers’ students from Headquarters, Ft. Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines and Coral Gable participated in our biannual Youth Fellowship Challenge.
USS Philippine Sea (CG-58) is a Flight II Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser on active service in the United States Navy. She is named for the Battle of the Philippine Sea during World War II and is the second ship to bear the name. The Philippine Sea was the first U.S. or allied vessel to launch missiles against Saddam Hussein’s forces during the Gulf War in 1991. She has completed multiple deployments as part of Operation Enduring Freedom since 2001.
