Allen In Indian Ocean
Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Krishon T. Allen, son of Jacqueline A. Kinebrew of Rockaway, N. Y., and fellow sailors aboard the fast combat support ship USS Bridge recently sailed through the Indian Ocean during the final stages of their current eight-month deployment to the Arabian Gulf.
Allen is one of the more than 600 sailors aboard the Bridge which is on
its last deployment as a commissioned U.S. Navy ship. Upon return to its home port of Bremerton, Washington, the Bridge will be decommissioned and join the Military Sealift Command as USNS Bridge.
Allen’s ship is designed to provide fuel, ammunition, provisions, stores, fleet freight, mail and personnel via connected and vertical replenishment operations.
Allen is a 2000 graduate of Midwood High School of Brooklyn, N. Y. and joined the Navy in August 2000.
