Rescues.

On 21 June, an MH-60 helicopter from HSC-28 Det 2 was directed by U.S. 5th Fleet to an Iranian fishing dhow stranded in the Arabian Gulf. The helicopter crew found the dhow with nine people on deck, with the vessel taking on water. The mariners signaled to the helicopter crew that something was broken below deck. With the help of a Kearsarge (LHD 3) crewmember fluent in Farsi, the ship's crew was able to communicate that the dhow had a broken engine and had been afloat for several hours, and that the crew was very hungry. Kearsarge launched her RHIB and provided the dhow's crew with food and gasoline. The crew requested no additional assistance.
