USS San Diego Visits GTMO on Maiden Voyage
GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba - USS San Diego (LPD 22) visited Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay during her maiden voyage, March 19-21.

The San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship was in port for water and supplies as she transits to her future homeport and namesake, San Diego, Calif.

"NS Guantanamo Bay has provided normal services for the San Diego during her visit," said Lt. Cmdr. Shawn Ware, NS Guantanamo Bay Port operations officer. "The installation has also facilitated the movement of ship personnel for American Red Cross and medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) reasons."

San Diego's keel was laid May 23, 2007, at Northrop Grumman's Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss. The ship launched May 7, 2010, and was christened June 12, by sponsor Linda Winter, wife of former secretary of the Navy Donald C. Winter.
