USS Shiloh Sails into Subic Bay, Philippines

The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67) arrived in Subic Bay, for a port visit, May 29.

Naval Base Subic Bay closed in 1992, and since then the Republic of the Philippines converted the area into the Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ), which is the first of its kind in the country.

Shiloh’s last port visit to the Philippines was in February 2014 in Cebu.

Shiloh, forward deployed to Yokosuka, Japan, is on patrol in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Asia Pacific region.
