USN Mark VI patrol boat navigates prior to embarking aboard USS Ashland at Naval Base Guam

Note. At one time this irked me a bit. I was miffed that parts of the GCE were being left on the pier while being displaced by patrol boats of limited utility. Little did I know that it was in preparation for what we're seeing today. Berger's plan would assumably give the US Navy EXCESS capacity when it comes to amphibious lift. Long story short? Expect Patrol Boats, Army Strykers, even foreign forces to take up the well decks we're vacating.
Gaum (Feb. 21, 2021) - A U.S. Navy Mark VI patrol boat with Maritime Expeditionary Security Squadron Two, Bravo Company, navigates through the water prior to embarking aboard dock landing ship USS Ashland (LSD 48) at Naval Base Guam, Feb. 21, 2021. The 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit is operating aboard ships of the Amphibious Squadron 11 in the 7th fleet area of operations to enhance interoperability with allies and partners and serve as a ready response force to defend peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific Region.
