Djibouti Coast Guard,US Navy transfer distressed mariners to shore
PORT OF DJIBOUTI, Djibouti — 6/10/21 — 15 civilian mariners walk ashore after having been ferried into the Port of Djibouti by the Djiboutian Coast Guard and US Navy.
USNS Patuxent was operating in the Gulf of Aden on June 9 when Falcon Line, a general cargo ship registered in Gabon, was sinking. Patuxent arrived in time to rescue the crew. On Thursday the Djiboutian Coast Guard transferred the crew to shore.
U.S. Navy Maritime Expeditionary Security Squadron Eleven (MSRON-11), based at Camp Lemonnier, supported the transfer by providing security around Patuxent and the Djiboutian Coast Guard while the transfer took place. Djibouti worked with the United States, Egyptian and Indian Governments to coordinate the transfer of the distressed mariners. After arriving at the Port of Djibouti, the mariners received a COVID-19 test from the Djiboutian Coast Guard Hospital. The Government of Djibouti is now assisting the mariners as they are transferred to their home countries, Egypt and India. Camp Lemonnier is an operational installation that enables U.S., allied and partner nation forces to be where and when they are needed to ensure security in Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia.

Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
