APRA HARBOR, Guam (Aug. 29, 2017) Boatswain’s Mate 3rd Class Chad Williams from Norfolk, Va., tightens a hawsing stopper to secure an anchor chain on the forecastle of the amphibious dock landing ship USS Ashland (LSD 48) during a sea and anchor detail to off-load Marines ashore for training. Ashland is in Guam for a scheduled voyage repair availability (VRAV) while Marines of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) will conduct unit-level training ashore. Ashland and the 31st MEU are operating in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to enhance partnerships and be a ready-response force for any type of contingency.
