Bispham Visits Mallorca

Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Rehenia K. Bispham, daughter of Marie Hodge and Abdo Alkaifi of Inwood recently made a port visit to Palma de Mallorca, Spain, during a routine scheduled deployment, while assigned to the amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge, homeported in Norfolk, Virginia.

The Sailors and Marines of Bispham’s unit went on tours, visited historical sites, shopped, and participated in two different community relations projects.

Bispham’s ship deployed along with USS Ashland, USS Ponce and USS

Gonzalez, as part of the USS Kearsarge Expeditionary Strike Group in

support of the global war on terrorism and Operations Enduring/Iraqi Freedom.

Bispham’s ship’s primary mission is to embark, deploy and land elements

of a Marine landing force.

She is a 1993 graduate of Far Rockaway High School and joined the Navy in October 1966.
