MELBOURNE, Australia -- The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen (DDG 82) arrived in Melbourne for a port visit, Aug. 7.
During the port visit Lassen will be involved in several community service (COMSERV)projects. These activities will include visiting an after school program and a soccer game with the local community.

In addition to the COMSERV projects, Sailors will be given the opportunity to experience the sights of the local area with various tours of museums and zoos.

“Australia and the United States have a rich longstanding allied history, and Lassen is proud to represent that relationship in Melbourne,” said Cmdr. Scott McClelland, Lassen’s commanding officer. “The crew will embrace the rich culture Melbourne has to offer through tours of museums, a zoo, and community service events.”

Lassen, forward deployed to Yokosuka, Japan and part of Destroyer Squadron 15, is on patrol in the 7th Fleet area of responsibility supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
