Stennis Strike Group Visits Singapore

By USS John C. Stennis Public Affairs
Posted: January 26, 2012

SINGAPORE – Ships from the John C. Stennis Strike Group (JCSSG) arrived in Singapore for a port visit Jan. 26.


“The U.S. Navy has been visiting Singapore for more than 100 years,” said Rear Adm. Craig Faller, commander of the JCSSG. “They are one of our closest partners in the region and invaluable in our counter-terrorism and maritime security efforts.”
 

While in port the ships plan to host a formal reception for local and foreign dignitaries and conduct various community service projects while Stennis’ Morale, Welfare and Recreation program is offering Sailors a variety of local tours and activities as well as trips to neighboring islands.
 

“This is one of the most diverse places in the world,” said Lt. Cmdr. Tiffany Dodson, a medical officer aboard Stennis. “I’m really looking forward to experiencing the many cultures here, as well as trying the laksa.”
 

The JCSSG is currently deployed to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations conducting maritime security operations and cooperative engagements with regional partners.
 

The strike group consists of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), guided-missile cruiser USS Mobile Bay (CG 53), and guided-missile destroyers USS Dewey (DDG 105) and USS Pinckney (DDG 91), Mobile Bay, and ships from Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 21.
