PACIFIC OCEAN (Dec. 11, 2022) Navy divers assigned to Navy Expeditionary Combat Force's Explosive Ordnance Disposal Expeditionary Support Unit (EODESU) 1 connect the NASA line load attenuating mechanism assembly to the NASA Artemis I Orion spacecraft to pull it into the well deck of the amphibious transport dock USS Portland (LPD 27), Dec. 11, 2022. Portland and the Independence-variant littoral combat ship USS Montgomery (LCS 8) are underway in U.S. 3rd Fleet in support of the recovery.
