Military Photo: Rescue in the Persian Gulf


PERSIAN GULF (Dec. 23, 2007) A Navy Search and Rescue swimmer descends from an MH-60S Seahawk helicopter, assigned to the "Sea Knights" of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 22 embarked aboard the fast combat support ship USNS Arctic (T-AOE 8) to retrieve survivors from a life raft at sea. The shipwrecked survivors were escorted aboard the Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) for medical treatment. The seven mariners were recovered after their dhow sank in rough seas. Truman and Arctic are deployed to the Persian Gulf as part of the on-going rotation to support maritime security operations in the region. U. S.
