USS CURTS Shows off Skills in a Week at Sea
January 21st, 2011 - USS CURTS has returned to homeport San Diego after a robust week at sea. USS CURTS sailors were hard at work in a total team effort to improve the warfare readiness of their ship.
The USS CURTS crew improved their Flight Operations proficiency by conducting sixteen hours of Deck Landing Qualifications with Helicopter Squadron 41 and Helicopter Squadron 8. The USS CURTS also performed a Torpedo Firing Exercise to maintain a peak level of Anti-Submarine Warfare capability. Among the other exercises packed in to the high tempo schedule were a Visitation, Boarding, Search and Seizure drill focusing on CURTS ability to handle refugees and detainees, a drill designed to test CURTS defense against a small boat attack, and practice recovering a man overboard at night.
The highlight of the one week underway period was a full Chemical/Biological/Radiation Attack drill during which all USS CURTS Warriors were called to Battle Stations to defend the ship against a simulated gas attack.
The USS CURTS sailors celebrated their accomplishments and the sailors with birthdays in January with a cake and ice cream social and some welcome rest after their rigorous week at sea. After completing their underway training, USS CURTS’ sailors displayed excellent ship handling skills, safely and skillfully returning home to San Diego.
