Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class Dinteru Lowary lines up one corner of a 20-foot-by-10-foot shipping container as it is slowly lowered onto a bomb cart. The large containers are removed from the vessel using 40-ton gantry cranes. Once the containers are loaded on to bomb carts, they are trucked to a nearby staging area to await further transportation. Lowary, assigned to Navy Cargo Handling Battalion 1, Naval Weapons Station Yorktown, Va., was one of about 50 Soldiers and Sailors brought in to accomplish a recent prepositioning mission at Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command's Military Ocean Terminal Concord, Calif.
