USS Peleliu Sailors Talk About 'FOD' (Video)

USS Peleliu Combats FOD

Foreign Object Damage - or FOD - costs the Navy almost $90 million a year. That's why combating FOD is a priority for sailors on the San Diego-based USS Peleliu.

The Navy put together this video on how Pelieliu sailors do their part to scope out foreign objects, some smaller than a dime, to keep their ship running smoothly.

The USS Peleliu is currently deployed in the 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
