US mission ship arrives in Manila


The USS Paul Hamilton arrived in Manila on Sunday for routine port resupply mission and liberty call.

The ship is currently on independent deployment to the Arabian Gulf and Western Pacific Ocean, a statement from the United States Embassy in Manila said.

It departed for its deployment in February and has been conducting “theater security cooperation operations, maritime presence operations and leadership engagements with partner nations.”

The USS Paul Hamilton is not scheduled to conduct exercises during its resupply in the Philippines, the embassy said.

Its crew of more than 300 sailors will have the opportunity to enjoy “some well-deserved liberty and experience in the great city of Manila.”

The USS Paul Hamilton is a multi-mission ship designed to operate independently or with an associated strike group.

The ship is assigned to Destroyer Squadron 21, and is homeported in Hawaii within the US 3rd Fleet area of operations.
