GOA, India. The amphibious dock landing ship USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52) and the embarked 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), arrived in Goa for a scheduled port visit and subject matter expert exchange August 24. USS Pearl Harbor is a Whidbey Island class (cargo variant) amphibious dock landing ship with a crew of over 700 Sailors and embarked Marines.

While in Goa the ship’s Sailors and Marines will conduct exchanges with the Indian Navy and Indian Navy Marine Commandos relating to amphibious warfare.

They will also engage in community relations events and have the opportunity to experience Indian culture while enjoying liberty in one of the country’s most beautiful regions. This is the ship’s first visit to India.

“We are thrilled by the opportunity to visit India,” said Commander Theodore Essenfeld, USS Pearl Harbor’s commanding officer. “The Sailors and Marines of Pearl Harbor look forward to experiencing the culture and traditions of India while strengthening our long-standing partnership with the Indian Navy.”
