Three US Navy Ships to Attend Navy Days Los Angeles
Sailors aboard the US Navy’s Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruisers USS Bunker Hill (CG 52) and USS Cape St. George (CG 71) along with the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Halsey (DDG 97) will be in Navy Days Los Angeles Aug. 4-10.
Navy Days Los Angeles offers the public an opportunity to take a tour of the ships and meet Sailors and Marines as they showcase the ships’ capabilities. It also gives the public a chance to gain a better understanding of how the sea services support the national defense of the United States and freedom of the seas.
Throughout the week, Sailors will have an opportunity to interact with the local community, while participating in a number of community relations projects and a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) exposition.
Los Angeles citizens will have opportunities to tour the ships and meet Sailors in the Port of Los Angeles, next to the USS Iowa Museum.
