USS HAMPTON (SSN 767)

Friends and family of Sailors aboard the Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS Hampton (SSN 767) welcomed home Hampton’s crew Dec. 18 following a six-month deployment to the Western Pacific.

The deployment supported the nation’s maritime strategy, which includes maritime security, forward presence, sea control, and power projection.

During the deployment, Hampton executed missions vital to national security and participated in U.S. and multinational naval exercises. The ship’s port visits included Yokosuka, Japan, Singapore, Guam and Subic Bay, Philippines.

“I am proud of the tremendous effort the crew has put into being successful and for the support and encouragement from our great families. The men have done exceptionally well, and it shows,” said Hampton’s Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Lincoln Reifsteck.

Hampton was commissioned Nov. 6, 1993. Measuring more than 360 feet long and displacing more than 6,900 tons, Hampton has a crew of nearly 140 Sailors. Hampton is capable of supporting various missions, including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface ship warfare, strike, surveillance, and reconnaissance. She is one of six Los Angeles-class submarines homeported in San Diego.
