U.S. Army Reserve Sgt. Nathan Freeman, a watercraft operator, 481st Transportation Company (Heavy Boat), 311th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, gathers the tag lines used to direct equipment being loaded onto the Landing Craft Utility during end-of-mission cargo load operations in Kodiak, Alaska Aug 12. The crew of Army mariners, in partnership with U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy, recently completed support for the four-month inter-agency task force Innovative Readiness Training- Mertarvik by transporting personnel, equipment and supplies between various locations in order to help construct essential infrastructure to facilitate Newtok's relocation efforts. The Watercraft Unit, having vessels capable of handling shallower waters, has a unique and demanding mission to provide critical logistical support to all U.S. and coalition forces around the world.
