USS Chancellorsville Arrives in Guam

APRA HARBOR, Guam (Sept. 24, 2016) The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG 62) arrived in Guam for a routine port visit Sept. 24. While in Guam, Chancellorsville Sailors have the opportunity to experience the culture and take part in Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) events. The crew will also get the chance to interact with the local citizens through a community relation project.

"We are looking forward to our first port call of the patrol. The crew has worked exceptionally hard and deserves some rest and relaxation,” said Capt. Wilson Marks, Chancellorsville's commanding officer.

Guam is home to many local Chamorro restaurants and shops alongside familiar stateside establishments, where Sailors can dine and shop. The island also offers a variety of outdoor recreational sports.

Cryptologic Technician (Collection) 3rd Class Bryce Brumfield says this will be his first time visiting a liberty port since joining the U.S. Navy.

“Traveling the world is one of many reasons I joined the military,” said Brumfield. “I am looking forward to visiting Guam and I am excited for the cultural sites that it has to offer.”

For many Chancellorsville Sailors, Guam is a welcome chance to relax and explore the island including the famous beaches.

Chancellorsville is on patrol with Carrier Strike Group Five (CSG 5) supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
