The U.S. Army logistic support vessel General Frank S. Besson Jr. (LSV 1) drops its bow ramp on a beach on board Naval Amphibious Base (NAS) Little Creek, Va., during a training evolution. The prime mission of the ship is the direct transport and discharge of liquid and dry cargo to shallow terminal areas, to remote under-developed coastlines and on inland waterways. It is capable of carrying 2,280 tons of vehicles, including 26 M-1 Abrams tanks, containers or general cargo. (Photo: U.S. Navy/Photographer’s Mate 2nd Class Daniel J. McLain)
