PACIFIC OCEAN (Dec. 6, 2022) – Culinary Specialist Seaman Apprentice Vivian Ugarte, a native of Plainfield, Illinois, assigned to dock landing ship USS Harpers Ferry (LSD 49) serves lunch in the galley during exercise Steel Knight (SK23), Dec. 6, 2022. SK23 provides U.S. 3rd Fleet and I Marine Expeditionary Force with an opportunity to practice amphibious operations and demonstrate that amphibious forces can access critical areas that shape actions across the range of military operations to resolve conflict, conduct humanitarian assistance or combat the adversary. Steel Knight is an annual combined-arms live-fire exercise led by the 1st Marine Division which ensures forces are optimized for naval expeditionary warfare in contested spaces and is purpose-built to facilitate future operations afloat and ashore.
