USNS GYSGT Fred W. Stockham conducts personnel transfer at sea

The following blog excerpt was written by Jeff Londynsky, a Maersk port captain, following a personnel transfer at sea, Feb. 4, 2013.

MSC ship USNS GYSGT Fred W. Stockham, one of MCSs twelve container & roll-on/roll-off ships, was tasked to meet USNS Washington Chambers as it left the Fifth Fleet AOR. The mission was to transfer a personnel team from one ship to the next. From start to finish, the evolution took about an hour and a half, and prior planning made for a seamless operation. Well done, STOCKHAM!
