USS Michael Murphy Arrives in Hong Kong to Experience its Culture
HONG KONG – The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Michael Murphy (DDG 112) arrived in Hong Kong, April 24, for a port visit during the ship's maiden deployment.

Michael Murphy will spend several days in the city promoting international relations and cultural experiences within the local community. The crew will also enjoy some much deserved downtime and be able to engage with the local culture through several tours and activities sponsored by Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR).

“The crew has been looking forward to this Hong Kong port visit for some time,” said Cmdr. Robert Heely, Michael Murphy’s executive officer. "The city has so much to offer and I know they will enjoy the culture, sights, and warm hospitality that make Hong Kong a prized international destination."

During their free time in port, Michael Murphy Sailors look forward to visiting the memorable sights and attractions that Hong Kong has to offer.

“While in Hong Kong, I plan to hike Victoria Peak and enjoy the wonderful views from the top,” said Electricians Mate First Class Andrew Synan. “Port visits like this allow us to recharge and enjoy some once in a lifetime opportunities that we will remember for the rest of our lives.”

Michael Murphy is named in honor of Lt. (SEAL) Michael Murphy, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for valorous service during Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan in 2005.

Michael Murphy is on deployment to the 7th Fleet area of responsibility supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
