PORT GENTILE, Gabon — Chief of the Gabonese National Navy, Captain Paul Biving Nziengui and U.S. Navy Captain John Nowell, Commander, Africa Partnership Station, thanks Storekeeper 2nd Class Ronald Saucedo Jan. 17.  Saucedo saved a Gabonese citizen's life on Sogara Beach here Jan. 14.  The award presentation followed a graduation ceremony for Gabonese maritime professionals who have completed training onboard Africa Partnership Station.  The basic life saving training that Saucedo received is the same training that Africa Partnership Station (APS) is teaching to West and Central African countries onboard the amphibious dock landing ship USS Fort McHenry (LSD 43).  As part of the Navy's new cooperative maritime strategy, APS is a multi-national effort to bring the latest training and techniques to maritime professionals in nine West and Central African countries.
