090105-N-5681S-008 ARABIAN GULF (Jan. 05, 2009) Hospital Corpsman First Class (SW/FMF) Richie Luna uses a swab to take a DNA sample from Fireman Jodie Mooneyham aboard the multi-purpose amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7). The sample will be sent to the Bone Marrow Registry. Iwo Jima is deployed as part of the Iwo Jima Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) supporting maritime security operations (MSO) in the U.S. Navyís 5th Fleet area of operations. MSO help develop security in the maritime environment. From security arises stability that results in global economic prosperity. MSO complements the counterterrorism and security efforts of regional nations and seek to disrupt violent extremists’ use of the maritime environment as a venue for attack or to transport personnel, weapons or other material.
