Hopefully everyone remembers that cruise ship that was almost hijacked off the Somali coast? Never fear, the U.S. Navy is now on the scene policing the highways of the sea.
The guided missile destroyer Winston Churchill has just captured such a pirate vessel. After repeated shots across the bow, the suspect vessel finally heaved to, and was boarded by a Navy boarding party. The party found small arms aboard the boat.
To the crew of USS Winston Churchill, Brazo Zulu.
