On 17 January 2013 following a port call and fuel stop in Subic, USS Guardian proceeded across the Sulu Sea and entered the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park.After appearing on Park radar, at approximately 0400 hours local time Guardian was radioed a warning by park officials that the vessel had entered a restricted area. Park officials claim their lawful warning was met with disregard by Guardian, which radioed back to "bring [their] complaint to the US Embassy." Shortly thereafter, the captain of the USS Guardian ran his vessel aground on Tubbataha Reef, about 130 kilometres (70 nmi) south east of Palawan in the Philippines.
I think the Radio calls from the Park Rangers to the USS Guardian went something like this........
