Cape St. George Visits Busan during Western Pacific Deployment
 
BUSAN, Korea (Nov. 21, 2014) – The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Cape St. George (CG 71) arrived in Busan, Republic of Korea, for a port visit Nov. 21.
 The ship, with a crew of approximately 300 Sailors, is homeported in San Diego and is currently on a routine deployment to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. 
 
"Cape’s officers and crew have enjoyed a successful 7th fleet deployment thus far supporting the Navy’s forward presence mission," said Capt. Michael P Doran, commanding officer of Cape St, George. "Our port visit to Korea gives Cape and her Sailors an opportunity to help strengthen our alliances with the Republic of Korea and their navy, and positively contribute to regional security and stability."
While in Busan, Cape St. George Sailors intend to learn about Korea’s culture and explore sites around the greater Busan region. . In addition, Cape St. George Sailors  will participate in three Community Relations Projects around the city of Busan. During these projects, U.S. Sailors will meet with students to enjoy cultural exchanges. 
 
Cape St. George and it’s two embarked MH-60R Seahawk helicopters are ideal for independent operations or with an associated carrier strike group. As a multi-mission platform, the ship is currently supporting 7th Fleet as it maintains a routine presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region in order to promote security and peace, and develop partnerships with partners and allies.
