SAN DIEGO -- The future amphibious transport dock ship USS Portland (LPD 27) will arrive at its new homeport of San Diego, Jan. 22.

Portland's arrival to her new Southern California homeport concludes a six-week transit from her building site at Huntington Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss.

The ship departed Pascagoula Dec.14 and made port visits to eastern U.S. Naval bases, such as Key West and Mayport, Fla., as well as a visit to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Portland is the 11th San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship. It is the third ship to bear the name 'USS Portland,' however it is the first ship to be named solely after the largest city in Oregon.
