It's clean up time for USS Boxer as Marines and Sailors spend time sweeping and 'police calling' the 844ft-long flight-deck. During a recent port visit, the ship's deck was sand blasted to strip parts off the the old deck surface and repaired with new 'non-skid' material. The sandblasting the process left residue on the deck that could potentially be harmful for aircraft aboard the ship. The following photos are a few images of the hard work service members put in to keep operations going.
