Story by LTJG Harrison O. Yelverton IV, Public Affairs Officer USS AVENGER (MCM 1)
CAMBODIA, Sihanoukville - USS Avenger (MCM 1) made its historic arrival in Sihanoukville, Cambodia on the 12th of June for a port call where Avenger Sailors will take part in training, Project Handclasp, and warfare workshops.

Avenger Sailors have been preparing for the classroom sessions taught by AVENGER’s leadership. Topics will include: Force Protection, Damage Control, Medical Readiness, 3M, Navigation, and Seamanship. The subject matter experts (SMEs) have run drills for weeks, held on-the-job training, signed PQS, and taught administrative maintenance lessons to its leading petty officers. “These classroom workshops will invoke open dialogue and identify other ways to accomplish similar goals. Honest self assessment is a vital key in the life of any warship and must be avidly reinforced.” said LTJG James Nafsey, Damage Control Assistant onboard USS AVENGER (MCM 1). “We are constantly looking for ways to make AVENGER a better warship and vital asset in 7th Fleet.”

This working port is one of several the USS AVENGER (MCM 1) will have on their maiden 7th fleet deployment. "We’re a small crew, but we pride ourselves on working the hardest.” said LCDR Patrick Sullivan, Executive Officer of the USS AVENGER (MCM 1), “We identify problems, work through them, and get the job done.”
