INDIAN OCEAN (Oct. 7, 2018) A Sri Lankan fisherman jumps and swims to a rigid-hull inflatable boat (RHIB) from the Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Decatur (DDG 73) after the ship stopped to render assistance to a stranded fishing vessel. After providing food and water, Decatur contacted the Sri Lankan authorities who came and towed the stranded vessel back to port. Decatur is forward deployed to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Pacific region.
