While in port the ships plan to host a formal reception for local and foreign dignitaries and conduct various community service projects while Stennis' morale, welfare and recreation program is offering Sailors a variety of local tours and activities as well as trips to neighboring islands.

"This is one of the most diverse places in the world," said Lt. Cmdr. Tiffany Dodson, a medical officer aboard Stennis. "I'm really looking forward to experiencing the many cultures here, as well as trying the laksa."

The JCSSG is currently deployed in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations conducting maritime security operations and cooperative engagements with regional partners. The strike group consists of Stennis, aircraft from Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 9, Mobile Bay, and ships from Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 21.
