USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD-6) is a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship, and the third United States Navy ship of that name. It was named in honor of John Paul Jones' famous frigate, which he had named the French equivalent of "Good Man Richard," in honor of Benjamin Franklin, the U.S. Ambassador to France at the time. The name "Bonhomme Richard" is derived from the pen name of Benjamin Franklin, the author of Poor Richard's Almanac.
The ship is currently in active service and is the flagship for Expeditionary Strike Group Seven.
