Garcia assigned to deployment

PECOS, May 2, 2001 - Navy Seaman Jesus Garcia, son of Mr.and Mrs. Hilario Garcia of Pecos, is halfway through a six-month deployment to the Mediterranean Sea and Arabian Gulf while assigned to the amphibious assault ship USS Nassau, home ported in Norfolk, Va.

During the deployment, Garcia's ship participated in "Spanish Phiblex," an exercise consisting of a series of amphibious landings with Spanish naval forces. USS Nassau also participated in a live-fire training exercise in Capo Teulada, Sardinia.

The ship also has conventional landing craft and helicopters embarked, and is equipped with medical facilities staffed by Navy doctors, dentists, nurses and corpsmen.
