LOS ANGELES - The Ticonderoga class guided-missile cruiser USS Cape St. George (CG 71) arrived in the Port of Los Angeles Aug. 4 to participate in the 2015 Los Angeles Navy Days.

Los Angeles Navy Days offers the public an opportunity to tour Navy warships, gain an understanding about the science and technology employed by the Navy and learn about the Sailors who make up today’s Navy. Together these opportunities afforded the public a chance to understand how the sea services support national defense and freedom of the seas

While in port, Cape St. George opened daily for tours by the general public. The ship’s crew led tour groups and discussed their jobs as subject matter experts to more than 1,500 children in support of the Los Angeles Science Technology Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program. Over the weekend, the ship provided tours to nearly 3,000 civilians.

Off the ship, Cape St. George’s Sailors participated in a variety of activities organized by the city of Los Angeles including attendance at Major League Baseball games.

“Getting to attend the Angels games was one of the highlights of our stay in Los Angeles. It meant a lot that those tickets were donated to us,” said Petty Officer Third Class Richard Bustamante.

Sailors also volunteered their time during five community relations events throughout the Los Angeles community.

Cape St. George, homeported in San Diego, is a multi-mission platform capable of air, surface, and sub-surface defense. The ship recently returned from a Western Pacific deployment in January and is undergoing sustainment maintenance.
