Petty Officer 1st Class Michael Etheredge, attached to Amphibious Construction Battalion 2, looks on as a Maritime Prepositioning Utility Boat pulls two Yokohama fenders to the pier so the Improved Navy Lighterage Causeway Ferries can safely moor pier-side in preparation for load on/load off crane operations during Joint Logistics Over the Shore (JLOTS) 18. JLOTS 18 marks the beginning of U.S. Southern Command’s exercise Beyond the Horizon, led by U.S. Army South, that helps to bolster regional and partner relations through humanitarian and civic assistance projects, medical readiness exercises, and exercise related construction projects taking place in El Salvador.
