Australian - American Alliance by 

This week our Prime Minister and President Obama announced a stronger U.S Marines base is to be introduced at our far North City of Darwin. Initially there will be 250 Marines based there then gradually increased to 2,500 Marines within 5 years. There are also increased numbers of U.S. Airforces which I personally welcome to our country.

Thankyou America for your friendship and close Alliance to our country “Girt by Sea”.

Hi, my name is Chris. I reside in Horsham, the capital of the whealt belt area in Victoria, Australia. I enjoy capturing the beauty of my beloved country and touring Australia in my Caravan. The majority of my photographs are landscape images of my travels.

I hope you enjoy my travels too and I thankyou for taking your time to look at my work!

Warm Regards

Chris (cjcphotography)

    I love this, Christopher. I am glad our Air Force and Marine personnel are welcome. I served in the US Air Force and wish I had had the opportunity to serve in Australia.

  • Hi Lori. That is very interesting that you served in the US Air Force, it is a pity you never got to Australia! I am grateful that Obama has chosen Australia to expand it’s forces in the Asian area, not only for disaster relief but also for protection of our shores…………Chris ♥………..
