HONG KONG - The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin (DDG 89) arrived in Hong Kong Feb. 13 for a port visit during a routine patrol in the 7th Fleet area of operations.

Mustin is forward deployed to the Indo-Asia-Pacific and sails with a crew of approximately 300 Sailors. The destroyer visited Hong Kong in 2015, and the crew was excited to return to the “Fragrant Harbor,” a favorite port for many of them.

“I’m excited to visit Hong Kong again,” said Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Steven Smith. “There’s too much to see in just one visit. I love the sights, the smells, and the people.”

While in Hong Kong, Mustin Sailors have the opportunity to participate in two community programs. Sailors will assist with serving food to elderly citizens of Hong Kong at a local non-governmental organization.

Through the “Meals in the Home” program, the American Women’s Association provides the opportunity for Sailors to spend the day enjoying the hospitality of expat families in Hong Kong.

Mustin is assigned to Destroyer Squadron 15 located in Yokosuka, Japan, and operates to maintain security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific.
