Phoenix sailor trains to use non-lethal weaponry

Posted

A Phoenix sailor recently participated in a non-lethal weapons training course aboard a U.S. Navy warship.

Operations Specialist Seaman Brianna Vasquezragan, from Phoenix, recently took part in a non-lethal weapons and oleoresin capsicum (pepper) spray training course, according to a press release.

She is assigned to the amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) in its homeport of San Diego.

Bonhomme Richard has “implemented an aggressive mitigation strategy,” the release said, to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19, while maintaining training and mission readiness.
