USS George Washington provides Ospreys expeditious refueling point

Petty Officer 3rd Class Michael J. Sauber guides an MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft as it lands aboard the USS George Washington Nov. 20 during Operation Damayan. The Osprey is a unique asset to this operation due to its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities, and its ability to convert quickly to fixed wing configuration, giving it increased speed and range. The Osprey is with the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade's aviation combat element in support of Joint Task Force 505, and Sauber is an aviation boatswain’s mate (handling) with the USS George Washington, George Washington Carrier Strike Group.
