USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52) Rescues Sailors in Gulf of Arden   
 
GULF OF ADEN (Sept. 29, 2010) Sailors and Marines assist rescued persons embark the amphibious dock landing ship USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52) after being transferred from the guided-missile destroyer USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG 81). They were rescued by Sailors assigned to Winston S. Churchill Sept. 27 after their small boat capsized in the Gulf of Aden. Pearl Harbor's larger size makes the ship better equipped to accommodate the 62 rescued persons. Pearl Harbor is part of Combined Task Force (CTF) 151, a multinational task force established in Jan. 2009 to conduct counter-piracy operations in and around the Gulf of Aden and Somali Basin.
