Landing Craft Utility

I’ve read about Landing Craft Utility (LCU) vehicles, seen them in the movie Saving Private Ryan but never witness amphibious operations up close and personal like this before.  The Sailors that make this possible are extremely skilled in their craft.  See images below as this naval vessel receives an LCU.  These vessels are traditionally used by amphibious forces to transport equipment and troops to the shore.
