USS Sampson Visits Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam
The US Navy’s San Diego-based guided-missile destroyer USS Sampson (DDG 102) arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam for a scheduled port visit on November 6.
Sampson, a part of the Naval Surface Forces, U.S. Pacific Fleet and U.S. 3rd Fleet, departed for an independent seven-month journey to the western Pacific Ocean.
The ship and crew of more than 300 Sailors, assigned to Destroyer Squadron Two Three (DESRON) 23, will conduct various presence operations and goodwill activities with partner nations.
U.S. 3rd Fleet leads naval forces in the Eastern Pacific from the West Coast of North America to the international date line and provides the realistic, relevant training necessary for an effective global Navy.
