October 4 2008, the guided-missile destroyer USS Halsey (DDG 97) steams through rough seas off the coast of Southern Australia while enroute to the Indian Ocean. Halsey is part of the Peleliu Expeditionary Strike Group deployed to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility.
On arrival, part of HALSEY’s contribution was training the Seychelles Coast Guard in VBSS (Visit, Board, Search & Seizure) tactics. The Seychelles Coasties put those tactics to use on Sunday when they arrested three pirates found in a skiff in the republic’s vast Exclusive Economic Zone.
