Sailors from the U.S. Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Hopper (DDG 70) arrived in Hong Kong, Feb. 5, for a port visit during a routine patrol in the 7th Fleet area of operations.

Hopper is deployed to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, and sails with a crew of approximately 300 sailors.

While in Hong Kong, Hopper sailors will have the opportunity to participate in two community programs. They will assist a local community organization dedicated to helping the elderly as well as participate in activities with local schoolchildren.

Hopper is a multi-mission ship with anti-air warfare, anti-submarine warfare and anti-surface warfare surface combatants capabilities; designed to operate independently or with a surface action group or strike group. Home-ported in Pearl Harbor, Hopper is currently underway in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region on an independent deployment.
