    13th Marine Expeditionary Unit   

    SA-330J Puma helicopters transfer mail and essential gear from the Military Sealift Command dry cargo/ammunition ship USNS Lewis and Clark to the flight-deck of USS Boxer during a replenishment at sea operation. The Lewis and Clark is a Combat Logistics Force Underway Replenishment Naval vessel that resupplies ships with ammunition, food, limited quantities of fuel, repair parts, ship store items and expendable supplies. Boxer is deployed as part of Boxer Amphibious Readiness Group/13th Marine Expeditionary Unit supporting Maritime Security Operations in the Navy's 5th fleet area of operations. MSO help develop security in the maritime environment and compliment the counterterrorism and security efforts of regional nations. From security arises stability that results in global economic prosperity. These operations seek to disrupt violent extremists' use of the maritime environment to transport personnel and weapons or serve as a venue for attack.
