USS Momsen to the rescue


Reported here:
USS Momsen (DDG 92) and its embarked helicopter detachment provided assistance at sea to Motor Vessel Lehmann Timber yesterday.

Lehmann Timber experienced trouble with its main engine leaving it unable to operate at sea. Assigned to Combined Task Force (CTF) 150, Momsen is providing food and water to the motor vessel crew until a tug arrives to tow the Lehmann Timber to Salalah, Oman where it will undergo repairs.

The sea state in the area is currently 12-15 feet, with winds in excess of 30 knots. Momsen will remain on scene and continue to provide requested assistance until the tug arrives.
