    The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Mobile Bay (CG 53), and the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Spruance (DDG 111) arrived in Singapore for a scheduled port visit, Nov. 24.

    The visit to “the Lion City” by assets of the John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group (JCSSG) affords the crew the opportunity to enjoy one of the most dynamic ports in the world and to expand partnerships in the region.

    “Every Sailor in Carrier Strike Group 3 is excited and grateful for the opportunity to visit Singapore,” said Rear Adm. Mike Wettlaufer, commander, Carrier Strike Group 3. “In addition to this opportunity to enhance our partnership with the Republic of Singapore Navy, the diverse food options, recreational and entertainment activities, and chance to experience local cultures make this an ideal place for our team to enjoy some well-deserved rest.”

    John C. Stennis, Mobile Bay, and Spruance moored at Changi Naval Base after participating in a high-end dual carrier strike force exercise in the Philippine Sea with the Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group.

    During the port visit, JCSSG Sailors will have the opportunity to explore the island and the city, participate in community service events and take part in morale, welfare and recreation tours.

    Other components to JCSSG include Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 9 and Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 21, embarked aboard John C. Stennis.
    CVW-9 consists of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 71, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 14, Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 117, Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 133, VFA-151, VFA-97, VFA-41 and VFA-14.
