“It feels good to be making our way home,” said Quartermaster 1st Class Christian Roman. “It’s strange to think that this is the first U.S. port we have stopped in since we left San Diego.”
The San Diego’s port visit will allow the crew to conduct maintenance, load supplies, as well as relax and enjoy the local scenery.
“I know Guam has very nice and clear water with tons of wildlife,” said Marine Lance Cpl. Ty Dowdy. “I’ve never been snorkeling in another country so I think this will be a lot of fun.”
While in Guam, the San Diego will rejoin the amphibious assault ship USS America, the flagship of the ready group, which is also visiting the island.
The ships left San Diego in July on a deployment that took them to the Pacific, Middle East and Horn of Africa.
