In July, SLNC Magothy completed the Pacer Goose Sustainment Mission to Thule, Greenland for Military Sealift Command. The SLNC Magothy and her crew transported more than 1,000 tons of critical supplies that will be used to sustain Thule Air Base throughout this year.
The crew and all involved in the mission adhered to strict COVID protocols during load out, sailing and discharge. As Captain Noah Myrus said, “As in all aspects of life, the COVID-19 pandemic has created very difficult and unforeseeable challenges for Pacer Goose. Through the resilience and adaptability of all entities and persons involved this critical supply mission will be accomplished.” Many thanks to the Captain Myrus and the entire SLNC Magothy crew for their diligent efforts to successfully and healthily complete Pacer Goose Sustainment Mission 2020.
