Image of the Day: Helicopter Activities aboard USS Green Bay

A UH-1Y Venom helicopter attached to Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron (HMLA) 367 prepares to land aboard the San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship USS Green Bay (LPD 20) while in the Pacific Ocean, February 4.

Green Bay is transiting to Sasebo, Japan, to join the U.S. 7th Fleet’s forward deployed Naval forces.

Green Bay is replacing the decommissioned Austin-class amphibious transport dock ship USS Denver (LPD 9), previously forward-deployed to Sasebo, and will enhance amphibious presence in the U.S. 7th Fleet as part of the U.S. Navy’s long-range plan to send the most advanced and capable units to the Asia-Pacific region.
