USS Boxer (LHD 4) VERTREP | Video

In this timelapse video by MC3 (SW) Jesse Monford, sailors and Marines aboard USS Boxer (LHD 4) work to move pallets of supplies from the flight deck down to the hangar deck during a vertical replenishment (VERTREP) from USNS Wally Schirra (T-AKE 8). Several hours of hard work and flying are compressed into less than two minutes in this video, as a large portion or the crew moves pallets from aft to the elevator, and then down to the hangar deck. As pallets come aboard and are moved down to the hangar deck, they are broken down further for the supplies to be distributed to other areas within the ship.
