Welcome Aboard USS ARLINGTON (LPD 24)
Greetings from Commanding Officer CDR Darren Nelson:
Welcome to the web site for USS ARLINGTON (LPD 24). On behalf of our entire crew, we hope you enjoy this virtual tour of what will be the Navy's eighth and most advanced amphibious assault ship once construction is complete in 2012. We are privileged to be the third ship named ARLINGTON, and to be named in honor of the heroes and victims of the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon.
If you have orders to ARLINGTON, congratulations! We are very proud to have you join our crew. Information about the ship, including your “virtual welcome aboard package” is located throughout this website. You can also find us on Facebook. Regardless of whether you are a Sailor enroute to the command or merely interested in ARLINGTON, thank you for visiting and we wish you Fair Winds and Following Seas!
