APRA HARBOR, Guam -- The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG 62) arrived in Apra Harbor, for a port visit, July 27.

Chancellorsville’s visit to Guam marks her first port call of her patrol as part of the Forward Deployed Naval Forces.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to be with Chancellorsville visiting Guam,” said Master Chief Jonas D. Carter, command master chief of Chancellorsville. “This will be a first time visiting, not only for myself, but for most of the crew.”

During the visit, Chancellorsville Sailors will participate in community relation projects at a nearby school and summer camp where they will interact with local students by playing sports, reading, and other activities.

Also, Guam is host to many local Chamorro restaurants and shops alongside familiar stateside establishments where Sailors can dine and shop.

“Many of the Sailors will take advantage of the MWR [Morale, Welfare and Recreation] tours, local shopping, eating venues, and of course the two community relation opportunities, all of which, gives us the chance to experience Chamorro culture,” said Carter.

Chancellorsville is on patrol in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility in support of security and stability in the Indo-Asia Pacific region.
