Military Sealift Command Vessel Loads At North Charleston Terminal

February 4, 2003

The USNS Capella, a U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command Fast Sealift Ship, arrived this morning at the South Carolina State Ports Authority’s North Charleston Terminal to load military cargo in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and future contingencies.

The ship is being loaded with rolling stock and containerized cargo by the Army Military Traffic Management Command’s 841st Transportation Terminal Brigade, in close cooperation and partnership with the private waterfront community and the Ports Authority.

The U.S. Coast Guard Captain of the Port has issued a moving, 500-yard naval vessel protection security zone in and around Charleston Harbor, which will be enforced by Coast Guard patrols.
