Orry Coriell

Fire Controlman 1st Class Orry Coriell, a native of Ponchatoula, recently trained in anti-terrorism detaining tactics with Sonar Technician 1st Class Susan Nguyen of San Antonio.

Coriell practiced detaining Nguyen by tying her hands behind her back. They were aboard Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS O’Kane (DDG 77), on Jan. 6.

O’Kane, part of the USS Essex Amphibious Ready Group along with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, is operating in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations to serve as a ready response force to ensure maritime security and a free and open Indo-Pacific region.
