U.S. Sailors board a disabled dhow

The amphibious transport dock ship USS Mesa Verde (LPD 19) waits in the distance as U.S. Sailors board a disabled dhow May 14, 2010, in the Persian Gulf. Sailors from the ship provided food and water, repaired the dhow's severed steering cable and restored engine power. The mariners were adrift for four days with minimal food and no water. Mesa Verde is assigned to Combined Task Force 152, which conducts maritime security operations. (DoD photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Steve Smith, U.S. Navy/Released)
