LPD 22 SAN DIEGO is the sixth of the SAN ANTONIO Class of amphibious transport dock ships

Then Secretary of the Navy Gordon England named LPD 22 San Diego on 30 April 2004. "San Diego is home to a large number of the Pacific Fleet's ships. For decades our Nation's Sailors and Marines have begun their service to America at boot camps in San Diego. Thousands of military families and veterans have fallen in love with the area and are fortunate enough to live and work in San Diego. USS San Diego will project American power to the far corners of the earth and support the cause of freedom well into the 21st century," England said.

LPD 22 keel laying occurred in May 2007. The ship is tentively scheduled for delivery sometime in Summer 2011 with follow-on commissioning sometime in Winter 2011.
