SAN DIEGO (Nov. 12, 2015) Hull Technician 2nd Class Carissa Humphrey brazes a chilled water pipe aboard the amphibious assault ship USS America (LHA 6). Brazing is a process that joins two or more metal items together using a filler metal. America is undergoing a post-shakedown availability (PSA) in which the ship’s crew and assigned contractors make improvements to the ship’s design. America’s PSA will pave the way for future America-class amphibious assault ships. (Mass Communications Specialist 3rd Class Somers Steelman/Released)
