USNS Lopez recognized for service in Northern Screen



The following was posted October 25 on Military Sealift Command's Facebook. The USNS Lopez is operated by Crowley Liner Services and is manned in all licensed positions by American Maritime Officers.

This week help us recognize Military Sealift Command's USNS 1st LT Baldomero Lopez (T-AK 3010), a maritime prepositioning force container ship, which recently supported Marine units participating in Marine Forces Europe and Africa's exercise Northern Screen in Bogen, Norway.

Highlights of support included transporting more than 140 pieces of equipment for the Marines and launching 15 assault amphibious vehicles into the water using USNS Lopez's stern ramp.
