Hampton, under the command of Cmdr. Lincoln Reifsteck, returned from the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility where the crew executed the Chief of Naval Operations’ Maritime Strategy in supporting national security interests and maritime security operations.

The vessel left its homeport on March 14 and steamed more than 41,000 nautical miles during the deployment. Port visits were conducted in Okinawa, Japan; Yokosuka, Japan; Sasebo, Japan; and Guam.
