ARABIAN SEA (March 25, 2011) A member of the guided-missile cruiser USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) visit, board, search and seizure team shakes hands with the master of the Philippine-flagged merchant vessel M/V Falcon Trader II, which had sent out a distress call reporting it had been boarded by pirates. Helicopters from the Leyte Gulf and USS Enterprise (CVN 65) responded to the call and were able to disrupt the attack. Leyte Gulf and Enterprise are supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and regional maritime security operations as part of their deployment to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
