U.S. FLEET ACTIVITIES SASEBO, Japan - The final day of the 2017 Operation Appreciation tour concluded with a visit to the USS Bonhomme Richard, an amphibious assault ship that is the Expeditionary Strike Group's main battle platform. The great ship was forward-deployed to U.S. Fleet Activities, Sasebo Japan, during the Tour of Champions that included Summit Racing NHRA Pro Stock drivers Greg Anderson and Jason Line, Harley-Davidson Vance & Hines Pro Stock Motorcycle riders Eddie Krawiec and Andrew Hines, and Summit Racing BIGFOOT® 4x4 Monster Truck drivers Dan Runte and Larry Swim.
"This probably sounds strange, but I think I enjoy Operation Appreciation just as much or even more than winning the championship. Before I was invited to join Operation Appreciation and visit with our troops, I never really thought about our military and what they're doing overseas and how they're fighting for us. Now that I understand a little bit better, I'm really grateful that I am part of this and have the opportunity to thank them in a small way for all that they do. It isn't about who we are or what we've accomplished, these men and women show us a lot of appreciation for bringing a little bit of home to them, and that makes you feel really good, especially during the holidays when they are so far away from the United States.
