Partnership enables JB Charleston sealift relief efforts to Puerto Rico
The USNS Brittin (T-AKR-305) departs Joint Base Charleston, S.C., to Ponce, Puerto Rico Oct. 31, 2017. The USNS Brittin is scheduled to travel between Joint Base Charleston and Puerto Rico several times over the next few months. The first trip is bringing essentials such as food, water and vehicles to get aid to areas where mudslides have created access issues. Later deliveries will provide the equipment to restore utilities and rebuild the infrastructure on the island.
