17 August, 2009 - While inport Aksaz, Turkey, we have been busy preserving the ship. The great weather has afforded an opportunity to get at some of the harder to reach places. As I've mentioned on previous occassions preserving a ship is tough work but when everyone pitches in the task is easier. As you can see form the pictures on this post we had a great team effort today and the ship is looking great.
We also kicked off the planning portion of our international exercise with Office Calls, Planning Meetings, Lunch on a Turkish Ship (TCG GEMLIK), and a Reception this evening. Tomorrow the inport portion of the exercise continues with Damage Control Drills.
