    Military Sealift Command (MSC) fleet replenishment oiler USNS Yukon (T-AO 202) and dry cargo/ammunition ship USNS Washington Chambers (T-AKE 11) will participate in the Pacific portion of the U.S. Navy’s Large Scale Exercise 2021.

    Yukon and Chambers will provide logistics services including aviation fuel, bunker fuel, dry food, as well as machine parts and equipment to the ships in the region.

    “Exercises like LSE 21 demonstrate MSC’s ability to provide crucial logistics support to our joint warfighters,” said Capt. Kendall Bridgewater, commander, Military Sealift Command Pacific. “MSC is a vital part of our Nation’s defense force and exercises, like this, enable us to operate at an accelerated tempo that will better hone our skills for future operations.”

    LSE 2021 is a globally integrated exercise designed to test advanced warfare concepts across the full-range of maritime and amphibious operations under Distributed Maritime Operations (DMO). LSE 2021 will take place Aug. 3-16, 2021, in the U.S. Pacific Fleet, U.S. Fleet Forces, and U.S. Naval Forces Europe areas of operation.
