Sailors, Tyndall personnel partner to return vessel to water

U.S. Navy Sailors attach a guiding line to an anchor prior to returning a beached vessel to the water while at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla., Dec. 13, 2018. The U.S. Air Force Missile Retriever Ship was beached during the strong winds of Hurricane Michael. Sailors from Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit (MDSU) 2, homeported at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Ft. Story, partnered with Tyndall personnel to return the vessel to the water. The Missile Retriever ship is responsible for the location and recovery of Subscale Aerial Targets in the Gulf of Mexico W151 Live-Fire Range. MR’s also conduct launch and recovery corridor clearance operations for both SSAT and Full-scale Aerial Target Missions. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Isaiah J. Soliz)
