USS Leyte Gulf Visits Haakonsvern
The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) arrived in Haakonsvern, Norway for a scheduled visit, April 20th, 2017. This visit serves to enhance U.S.-Norway relations as the two nations work together for a stable, secure and prosperous Europe.
“Port visits such as this are uncommon; however, to be part of a crew that is fortunate enough to experience the rich culture that Norway has to offer is an amazing opportunity. The Sailors will be able to look back on these days and tell their stories, knowing that only a small number of people can say the same. That itself is worth its weight in gold in my opinion. And, as always, both on duty and on liberty, our Sailors foster peace and friendship with our hosts while expressing our gratitude for their hospitality.”
- Cmdr. Steven McCauley, executive officer, USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55)
