31st MEU/USS Ashland to Saipan on relief mission..photos by Mass Communications 3rd Class David A. Cox & Leah Eclavea
Interesting and refreshing.
We saw an attempt to perform this mission via MV-22 and from my chair it failed spectacularly. You just can't move the amount of supplies needed by air...you need a ship and the manpower that the ship brings to really help those in need.
I'm glad to see that trend end.
