• USS Fort Worth makes stop in Subic


    The littoral combat ship USS Fort Worth made a brief stop in Subic Bay as part of its maiden 16-month rotational deployment to support Washington’s rebalance to Asia policy, the US Embassy in Manila said on Tuesday. The USS Fort Worth was in Subic Bay on Monday to resupply and refuel before continuing its operations in the 7th Fleet area of responsibility—the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. According to its website, the 7th Fleet’s area of responsibility covers more than 48 million square miles (more than 124 million square kilometers)—from the Kuril Islands in the north to the Antarctic in the south, and from the International Date Line to the 68th meridian east, which runs down from the India-Pakistan border. The area includes 36 maritime countries and the world’s five largest foreign armed forces— China, Russia, India, North Korea and South Korea.
