Two Afghan men wait to be rescued by US Sailors aboard the guided missile cruiser USS Hue City (CG 66) April 7, 2013, in the US 5th Fleet area of responsibility. The men had been adrift for two days after a fire aboard their dhow forced them to abandon the vessel. The Hue City was deployed to the region conducting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
