PYEONGTAEK, Republic of Korea - The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin (DDG 89) arrived in Pyeongtaek, Republic of Korea, for a port visit Jan. 21.

The ship, which is forward-deployed to Yokosuka, Japan, is currently on a routine patrol and conducting bilateral training with the ROK Navy in waters around the Korean peninsula.

"Mustin’s visit to Pyeongtaek and our continued collaboration with our Republic of Korea Navy counterparts is another great opportunity for us to reinforce teamwork and interoperability that make our navies such effective partners,” said Cmdr. Joe Torres, commanding officer of Mustin.

While in Pyeongtaek, Mustin Sailors will participate in community relations projects with the ROK Navy and citizens in the local community. Additionally, crewmembers will conduct training sessions and engagements with their ROK Navy counterparts.

With a crew of 380 Sailors, Mustin can carry out independent operations or with an associated carrier strike group. As a multi-mission platform, the ship is currently supporting the U.S. 7th Fleet as it maintains routine presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific in order to promote security and peace, and develop partnerships with partners and allies.
