Singapore Welcomes USS Columbia

The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Columbia (SSN 771) arrived in Singapore, Oct. 4, for a visit as part of its deployment to the Western Pacific.

With a crew of 150, Columbia will conduct a multitude of missions and showcase the latest capabilities of the submarine fleet.

“Since departing homeport, Columbia has performed missions vital to national security and participated in several multi-national exercises, all of which have improved the overall war fighting readiness of allied forces in the Western Pacific,” said Cmdr. John Friedman, USS Columbia commanding officer.

“Our port visit to Singapore not only provided the crew with an opportunity to enjoy one of the best cities in the world but further strengthened our ties to our important regional partner.”
