ZHANJIANG, China (June 14, 2017) Boatswain’s Mate 2nd Class Steven Muckenthaler, a Mission Viejo, California native assigned to Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Sterett (DDG 104), ties a knot during a seamanship competition with People’s Liberation Army (Navy) (PLAN) sailors during the ship’s scheduled port visit to Zhanjiang, China. Sterett is part of the Sterett-Dewey Surface Action Group and is the third deploying group operating under the command and control construct called 3rd Fleet Forward. U.S. 3rd Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of 3rd and 7th Fleets.
