Image of the Day LCAC Enters USS Kearsarge Well Deck

Boatwain’s Mates direct a landing craft air cushion (LCAC) into the well deck of the amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge (LHD 3).

 

Kearsarge is underway conducting sea trials.

USS Kearsarge (LHD-3) is the third Wasp-class amphibious assault ship of the United States Navy. She is the fifth ship to be named (the fourth actually commissioned) in honor of the USS Kearsarge, a sloop-of-war that gained fame during the American Civil War, which was in turn named for Mount Kearsarge in New Hampshire.
