A Look At Life Aboard The USS Anzio While Assisting In The Operations Against ISIS In The Persian Gulf

January 27, 2017

Life aboard a U.S. Navy vessel is no walk in the park. It requires discipline, commitment, and focus.

It’s the type of duty very few know about, but it’s one of the most important ones in the first line of defense for our country.
