As the USS Bonhomme Richard conducts a replenishment at sea operation, the Marines and Sailors of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit aid in the transport and handling of over 250 pallets of food and other supplies. The ship also refueled on the move through the use of suspended hoses connected between the BHR and the replenishment ship, allowing the Navy to restock on vital supplies without taking the time to dock in port.
