Green Bay Arrives In Its New Homeport
by Surface Forces Public Affairs
SAN DIEGO –Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) Green Bay (LPD 20) docked at Naval Base San Diego Dec. 17, for the holiday season before the ship’s commissioning in Long Beach, Calif.
Sailors of Green Bay stopped in their future homeport to spend the holidays with friends and family, some of which have already moved to San Diego.
The Navy will commission its newest San Antonio class amphibious transport dock ship in Long Beach, Calif., Jan. 24, 2009.
Green Bay is the fourth ship in the San Antonio class. As a critical element in future expeditionary strike groups, the ship will support the Marine Corps "mobility triad," which consists of the landing craft air cushion vehicle (LCAC), the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) and the Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft (MV-22). Green Bay will support amphibious, special operations, and expeditionary warfare missions through the first half of the 21st Century.
