Ship in the Spotlight

Ship In the Spotlight This week, we are spotlighting charted tanker ship USNS Medgar Evers (T-AKE 13). The crew took the ship to sea July 14-17 to conduct Shipboard Qualification Trials (SQTs), an extensive series of qualifications, certification and training evolutions. Following the underway, the Civil Service Mariners (CIVMARS) successfully completed Afloat Team Tailored Training honing their damage control (DC) responses. The training included; Chemical, Biological and Radiological Defense (CBRD) classes, Abandon Ship Drills, Main Space Fire Drills and other practical and scenario-driven damage control events.

The Lewis and Clark-class dry cargo and ammunition ship is part of MSC’s Combat Logistics Force (CLF). CLF ships are the supply lines for U.S. Navy ships at se. These ships provide virtually everything that Navy ships need to remain at sea and combat ready for extended periods of time.
