Nearly 200 Navy Reservists from Inshore Boat Unit 14, from St. Louis, Mo., and Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit 101, from Everett, Wash., deployed July 10 to support U.S. 5th Fleet operations in the Persian Gulf.
Together, the combined units arrived in San Diego in late April to begin pre-deployment training and qualifications with Naval Coastal Warfare Group 1.

NCWG 1 has been deploying units for eight to 10 months each since 9/11; each time drawing from Navy Reserve units from across the United States.
