Partnership enables JB Charleston sealift relief efforts to Puerto Rico
Adam Smoak, Moran Environmental Recovery line handler releases the lines docking the USNS Brittin (T-AKR-305) to the Joint Base Charleston TC Dock Oct. 31, 2017. The ship departed Charleston holding 855 pieces of cargo bound for Ponce, Puerto Rico. 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.
