KODIAK -- A U.S. Army Reserve landing craft will soon carry away supplies left when an Army Reserve landing craft grounded near Alaska's Kodiak Island.
The Kodiak Daily Mirror says the landing craft Malvern Hill left Tacoma, Wash., June 29 and arrived in Kodiak late last week.
It replaces the landing craft Monterrey, which hit a charted rock off the City of Kodiak on June 8 and was intentionally beached.
The Monterrey unloaded 350 tons of Marine Corps construction equipment to help in the relocation of the village of Newtok. The craft was then sent to Seward for repairs.
The Malvern Hill will return the construction equipment to the Lower 48. Planned construction of buildings by Marines at Newtok's new village site this summer has been cancelled.
