USS RUSHMORE (LSD 47) successfully completed her Sea Trials after a 52-week Extended Docking Phased Maintenance Availability (EDPMA).  

"I am very proud of the crew and happy with the final product.  I think the combined efforts of the crew and shipyard has set Rushmore up to execute 20 more years of the nation's maritime strategy," said Cmdr. Brian Finman, USS Rushmore Commanding Officer.

USS RUSHMORE, the 7th of 8 ships in the Whidbey Island Class, is the second LSD on the West Coast to undergo the mid-life upgrade and the fourth in the fleet.

The ship's mission is to embark Marines with their combat equipment and vehicles, then remain at sea as an on-call force to conduct a diverse range of amphibious operations.
