Yankee Ingenuity

Need a way to fill a lot of water bottles in a hurry? Why it's hard to beat the Americans:

Indian Ocean (Jan. 4, 2005) - Sailors aboard USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) preposition jugs of purified water made for those in need of humanitarian assistance in Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia. The Repair Division aboard Lincoln constructed a Potable Water Manifold in eight hours. The water jugs will be flown by Navy helicopters to regions isolated by the Tsunami in Sumatra, Indonesia. Helicopters assigned to Carrier Air Wing Two (CVW-2) and Sailors from Abraham Lincoln are conducting humanitarian operations in the wake of the Tsunami that struck South East Asia. The Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group is currently operating in the Indian Ocean off the waters of Indonesia and Thailand. U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate Airman Jordon R. Beesley
