(Released) One U.S. Army M-113A2 Armored Personnel Carrier tows another down the roll-on, roll-off discharge facility of the USNS Pollux in the harbor of Pusan, Republic of Korea, on Oct. 20, 1998, for Exercise Foal Eagle '98. The ramp allows vehicles to be driven from inside the ship to a causeway and onto lighter craft for transportation to the shore. Foal Eagle '98 is a combined, joint exercise supported by forces from the U.S. and Republic of Korea. In addition to providing hands-on field experience for forces of both nations, Foal Eagle '98 was designed to test rear area protection operations and major command, control and communications systems. Pollux is one of eight Fast Sealift Ships belonging to the Military Sealift Command that have special features allowing them to load and off-load cargo in places lacking normal port facilities.   DoD photo by Spc.
