USS Michael Murphy Supports Maritime Interdicton Operations
The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Michael Murphy's (DDG 112) interceptor team provides security from the ship's rigid-hull inflatable boat after a low profile vessel was sighted by an MH-60R Sea Hawk, assigned to the "Easyriders" of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 37. The Michael Murphy crew kept the suspicious vessel in sight until the suspected smugglers and the vessel were turned over to the crew of U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Midgett (WMSL 757) who conducted a law enforcement boarding. Michael Murphy is conducting routine operations in the U.S. 4th Fleet area of operations. (U.S. Navy photo by Command Master Chief Jose Ramiro)
