Cooking for a captive

NELSON – Easter Sunday, April 12, 2009, started out like any other day for Dustin Brockman. A cook on the USS Bainbridge, Brockman – a Nelson native and graduate of Rock Falls High School – was stationed off the coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean when the call had come over the radio 4 days earlier that the ship and crew were needed. The reason: A group of Somali pirates had hijacked an American cargo freighter and taken its captain hostage on the ship's lifeboat. His name: Richard Phillips.
