Captain Adam Streeper of the USNS Brunswick gave a top tour of his ship to members of the Mieco Beach Yacht Club Thursday, with the cruisers and friends all eager with questions about details of the ship’s equipment and operation. This followed the vessel hosting a reception at the start of the Pacific Partnership mission last week. The tour roamed the huge decks and interior areas, including a privileged visit to the enormous vessel’s bridge.
The Brunswick is the transport for the visiting Navy and non-government Pacific Partnership team, which includes medical, construction, and musical experts.
Various groups with Pacific Partnership have been busy with putting on health fairs, sports activities for children, and entertaining concerts in Laura and Delap Park. Pacific Partnership musicians performed at and exchanged with students from Assumption Schools. Other Pacific Partnership members ran training programs for local food vendors and restaurants on food safety, installed water catchment tanks at Long Island Elementary School, and worked with Majuro hospital doctors and nurses.
The ship will be in Majuro until March 21, when it is scheduled to voyage to Kwajalein, where it will stay until March 29. The Brunswick then heads for Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia.
