USNS Lewis and Clark (T-AKE 1)

A harbor security boat patrols as dry cargo/ammunition ship USNS Lewis and Clark (T-AKE 1) arrives for a port visit. Lewis and Clark is a new Combat Logistics Force underway replenishment naval vessel to replace the current capability of the Kilauea-class ammunition ship, Mars-class and Sirius-class combat stores ships. Lewis and Clark was delivered to the Navy June 20, 2006, and is operated by Military Sealift Command. She is designed to have a crew of 123 civilian mariners augmented by a military department of 49 personnel. (Photo: U.S. Navy/Mr. Paul Farley)
