Things we do

conducting signal ops on the Signal Bridge during a
Sea & Anchor Detail.



LCAC
Operations
. Now, this is v. cool. A few months ago, I went down to
Well Deck Control to watch LCAC ops from inside. Very, very cool. They
come in, make a lot of noise, and then settle down when they come
off-cushion in the well. One young member of the deck force is out on
the walkway surrounding the well deck giving signals to the LCAC. The
well deck itself is lined with wood to protect the hulls. When they
leave, the exhaust turns inward and they kick up such a huge cloud that
you can't see them any more!
