ONBOARD USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN (CG 57) IN THE ARABIAN SEA --  Crewmembers on USS Greeneville (SSN 772) wait for USS Lake Champlain's (CG 57) Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB) to maneuver into position so they can unload supplies and personnel.  USS Greeneville is surfacing to receive food, supplies and personnel from USS Lake Champlain.  The RHIB will wait for the right wave and ride it up onto the hull of the submarine so the crew can unload the supplies and passengers.  USS Lake Champlain and USS Greeneville are both patrolling the Arabian Sea in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM.  Photograph cleared for public release by CDR Andrew Wilde, Fifth Fleet Undersea Warfare Officer, N35.  U.S. Navy Photograph by PH1(AW/SW) Greg Messier.
