Beaumont, Texas, (April 8, 2022) – Military Sealift Command in March chartered MV Cape Washington (T-AKR 9961) to load U.S. Army cargo at the Port of Beaumont in Texas and embarked two tactical advisors (TACADs) to oversee the voyage to Europe in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve. U.S. Navy Reserve Strategic Sealift Officer (SSO) Lt. Chris George served as the lead tactical advisor and U.S. Navy Reserve Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) Lt. Kevin Jones served as the other TACAD support element. What’s unique about TACADs is they have a solid military background that allows them to interact with ease between the ship’s crews and the active duty military and the combatant fleet. “Strategic Sealift Officers are a good fit for sealift voyages because we have experience in the maritime industry as licensed mates and engineers, which not only gives us a better understanding of the ship’s operations but it also helps us to more easily integrate with the civilian crew as military personnel,” George said.
