The people of the Solomon Islands and members of Pacific Partnership 2015 celebrated the completion of a successful two-week mission by the Military Sealift Command joint high-speed vessel USNS Millinocket on July 24.

Millinocket and embarked Task Forager provided medical, engineering, veterinary and dental support to Guadalcanal and Malaita citizens.

The leadership of the Solomon Islands expressed gratitude for all the assistance brought by Pacific Partnership 2015 personnel.

Seabees and Marines spent 12 days renovating Vura Primary School to improve the learning environment for the 450 students who attend the school.

The medical teams trained more than 160 Solomon Island medical professionals, farmers, and police.

They saw over 560 patients, 51 animals and distributed over 420 spectacles.

Millinocket departed the Solomon Islands July 26 and is en route to the Philippines to continue the Pacific Partnership 2015 mission.
