The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin (DDG 89) pulls into Otaru, Japan, for a scheduled port visit.
The ship, which is forward-deployed to Yokosuka, Japan, is currently on a routine patrol. The vessel recently engaged in bilateral training with the ROK Navy in waters around the Korean peninsula.
With a crew of 380 Sailors, Mustin can carry out independent operations or with an associated carrier strike group.
As a multi-mission platform, the ship is currently supporting the U.S. 7th Fleet as it maintains routine presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific in order to promote security and peace, and develop partnerships with partners and allies.
