NAVSUP GLS Tours USS Frank Cable

Commander, Naval Supply Global Logistics Support (NAVSUP GLS), Rear Adm. James McNeal, toured the submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40) while the ship was in port in Sasebo, Japan, March 10.

This visit was one of several for McNeal, who is touring various commands in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operation to improve his working knowledge of each command to better facilitate their supply requirements.

NAVSUP GLS oversees and supports logistics for the Navy and joint operations around the world. The sites visited during this tour include Fleet Logistics Commands (FLC) in Guam, Yokosuka, and Singapore.

The visit to Frank Cable, one of only two submarine tenders in the Navy, allowed McNeal to see a different kind of platform.

The vessel, forward deployed to the island of Guam, conducts maintenance and support of submarines and surface vessels deployed in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility and is currently on a scheduled underway period.
