Pic of the Day – Tugboat Assistance

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (Sept. 11, 2007) – Tugboats assigned to Naval Station Pearl Harbor assist San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock USS New Orleans (LPD 18) through the harbor waters as she approaches the pier at Fleet and Industrial Supply Center. New Orleans is in Pearl Harbor to provide an opportune lift for Sailors and service members assigned to the Hawaii region. The opportune lift program allows Sailors, service members and there families to save money by providing an alternative method of transporting privately owned vehicles between the mainland and Hawaii.
