USS Ashland is the name of the vessel that rescued recently a vessel that had been lost at sea for months. The sailors were brave and had to face squalls and sharks while they were at sea till they were finally rescued and brought back to land. The boat that was damaged by storms and drifted lost in the oceans for five months, was brought to shore by a US Navy ship at the White Beach Naval Facility which is in Okinawa in Japan.
An emergency beacon that was registered and working was found on the boat and it is possible that it was not noticed by the women on board. Their boat was discovered by a Taiwanese fishing vessel but they claim that the boat tried to tow them which was damaging their boat further. At such a time a mayday distress signal was sent out which was caught by USS Ashland. The women stated that they had been planning the journey for months and they had taken enough of the supplies. Even if they faced distressing conditions they had enough of the supplies.
