SHIP IN THE SPOTLIGHT

This week help us recognize USNS VADM K. R. Wheeler, USNS John Glenn, USNS Soderman, USNS Dahl, USNS Pililaau and MV Lyon. In the wake of Super Typhoon Yutu, these ships of Maritime Prepositioning Squadron Three, assisted Task Force West (TF-W) to provide relief to the Commonwealth of North Marianas Islands. On 24 Oct., 2018, Yutu made landfall on the Saipan, Tinian, and Rota becoming the second-strongest system to hit U.S. soil in recorded history. TF-W recovery efforts included more than 800 active duty military from more than 20 different units across all branches with MPS3 ships delivering vital logistical support.<br><br>The Wheeler spearheaded pier-side operations for bulk water distribution, quickly delivering supplies to shore while the John Glenn, Soderman, Dahl, Lyon, and Pililaau went to work making clean water, bulk ice and providing volunteers for the cleanup. Together, the ships provided 18,871 gallons of potable water, 203,955 gallons of non-potable water, 86,160 pounds of ice, and 140 loads of clean laundry for emergency and medical services. #UnitedWeSail
