MSC Delivers: Special Mission #Warfighting Support

October is #WARFIGHTING month, and Military Sealift Command works 24/7 to operate the ships that sustain our warfighting forces worldwide. The following post is the second in a series that highlights each of MSC’s five ship programs and their vital missions.

Most people aren’t aware of the types of special missions MSC supports behind-the-scenes, mainly because most of that work includes classified, sensitive military operations involving some of the Navy’s most elite warfighters and weapons systems.

MSC’s Special Mission Program has about 24 ships that provide operating platforms and services for a wide variety of warfighting missions; some examples of this support include:

The vital missions performed by these special mission ships couldn’t be accomplished without the crews who operate them – civilian mariners employed by companies under contract to MSC. While Americans sleep tight, #MSCdelivers support to Navy warfighters around the world – together, we have the watch.
