The III Marine Expeditionary Force (III MEF) located in South Korea recently held training session aboard our vessel the Wheeler. Wheeler was participating in a JLOTS (Joint Logistics Over The Shore) exercise. JLOTS wherein the crew actually lays out flex piping from vessel to shore and simulates pumping fuel to war fighters by pumping water.
The photo includes the 53 members of III MEF unit and at the center of the first level (in civvies) are Chief Engineer Pat Yarbrough, First Engineer Shannon Wilson, Captain Glenn Macario, Lead Mission Specialist Rick Bower, and Mission Specialist Rick Waggoner of the Wheeler.
