SINGAPORE (Jan. 5, 2018) — The amphibious dock landing ship USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52) and embarked 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) departed Singapore on Jan. 5.

During the ship’s first port visit since their return to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, the crew onloaded supplies completed community service projects, and had the opportunity to experience the rich culture of Singapore.

“The crew got some much deserved rest and liberty in this fascinating country, and now we are ready to continue our mission here in this vital region,” said Cmdr. Kevin Dean, Pearl Harbor’s executive officer.

During the second day of the port visit, Sailors and Marines had the opportunity to volunteer at the Willing Hearts Soup Kitchen.

“We assisted in the cooking and preparation of more than 5,000 meals,” said Lt. Kenneth Orsburn, Pearl Harbor’s chaplain. “We joined the other staff and volunteers for lunch and got to know more about each other. It was a wonderful opportunity to work with Willing Hearts. The dedicated staff and volunteers provided us with inspiration as they seek to feed the hungry in their local community.”

While on liberty, Sailors and Marines were able to go out into Singapore and explore the country they had heard so much about prior to their arrival.
