December 4, 2010
- Army equipment comes off ship, gets serviced, returns to its floating warehouse
Operations continue at Gwangyang docks in the Republic of Korea as the USNS Watson downloads some of its 1,500 pieces of equipment, including vehicles. The materiel is part of Army Prepositioned Stocks - Afloat and is being serviced by Korean workers under the direction of Army Sustainment Command's 403rd Army Field Support Brigade.
The 950-foot long USNS Watson is one of Military Sealift Command's nineteen Large, Medium-Speed Roll-on/Roll-off Ships and is part of the 32 ships in Military Sealift Command's Prepositioning Program.
