The crew of the amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) is in preparation for its Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV) inspection, less than a month away.

A team of INSURV inspectors will spend a week aboard Bonhomme Richard starting Nov. 3 to conduct the in-depth inspection of the ship, required every five years.
The Board of Inspection and Survey was established by Congress to ensure that U.S. Navy ships are properly equipped for prompt, reliable, sustained mission readiness at sea. They inspect Navy ships and material and report their findings directly to Congress.

Bonhomme Richard began planning for INSURV in February, while carrying out its operational commitments, including participation in this summer's Rim of the Pacific exercise.
All around the ship, Bonhomme Richard Sailors are making great strides to ensure their ship is in the best condition ever. Machinist's Mate 1st Class (SW/AW) Brent Richardson explained the hard work and dedication the crew is putting in toward INSURV will pay off come November.

Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class(SW) Emerson Harris noted the deck department is also putting in long hours, preserving the ship and training personnel.
Bonhomme Richard's Commanding Officer, Capt. Neil Parrott praised the crew for their hard work and dedication in preparing for INSURV.
