Partnership enables JB Charleston sealift relief efforts to Puerto Rico
A longshoreman directs a truck moving cargo onto the USNS Brittin (T-AKR-305) Oct. 28, 2017, at Joint Base Charleston’s-Weapons Station, S.C. The USNS Brittin was loaded with 855 pieces of equipment for the first of several trips 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.
