Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class James Sarkor, on the left, lines up one corner of a 20-foot-by-10-foot shipping container as it is lowered onto a bomb cart. After the container is loaded on the bomb cart, other team members, like Sgt. Felix Encarnacion, use sticks of chalk to annotate to which holding area the container will be transported. Sarkor is assigned to Navy Cargo Handling Battalion 1, Naval Weapons Station Yorktown, Va., and Encarnacion is assigned to the 1179th Transportation Brigade, Fort Hamilton, N.Y. The two military mariners were among 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.
