Sailors aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin (DDG 89) welcomed approximately 4,700 Japanese visitors for the 22nd annual Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka’s (CFAY) Spring Festival, March 29.

Guests were treated to displays of damage control equipment and learned about the ship’s capabilities on a tour route including the flight deck, helicopter hangar, connected replenishment (CONREP) station and forecastle.

With a crew of 380 Sailors, Mustin can carry out independent operations or with an associated carrier strike group. As a multi-mission platform, the ship is currently supporting the U.S. 7th Fleet as it maintains routine presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region in order to promote security and peace, and develop partnerships with partners and allies.
