The article presents information on the ships of Military Sealift Command in the U.S. In 2004, Military Sealift Command (MSC) proved itself to be one of the U.S. Navy's most valuable commands by providing maritime support to all components of the Department of Defense and occasionally to other government agencies during Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Ammunition ships replenish ordnance stocks and other stores onboard Navy combatant ships. The ship Kilauea was assigned to MSC in 1980 and placed in reduced operating status in October 2000.
