On behalf of Assault Craft Unit Two (ACU-2), congratulations on your orders and welcome aboard. We are the workhorse of the amphibious fleet. Our mission is to provide combat-ready landing craft to operational commanders in support of amphibious and Maritime Pre-Positioning Force (MPF) operations and training. We look forward to adding you, along with your experience and talents, to our team. I am sure you will find your tour of duty here both challenging and rewarding.
The Command Master Chief can be reached at DSN 253-2707 or COMM (757) 462-2707.
The Command Sponsor Coordinator can be reached at DSN 253-2706 or COMM (757) 462-2706.
If you are reporting for sea duty, you will be assigned to the Landing Craft Utility (LCU) Department or the Landing Craft Mechanized (LCM) Department. If you are reporting for shore duty, you will be assigned to the department that best fits your rating and any other NECs that you may have.
Your sponsor will provide with you with information about your duties, the Hampton Roads area, and he/she will provide you with answers to specific questions and assist in making your transition a smooth one. Your sponsor may be reached by phone, mail and email, all of which will be provided. Please contact your sponsor at the earliest opportunity.
I strongly recommend that you make housing arrangements before you move your family to the area because Navy housing is limited. The command can provide you with any necessary real estate information in your Welcome Aboard package. Additionally, there are numerous web sites that deal specifically with local real estate. Some of these sites may be reached through the links posted on this site.
Again, welcome aboard, Shipmate.
