Photo of the day Kearsarge group ships welcomed home

In this U.S. Navy photo, the U.S. Fleet Forces Band performs pier side to welcome the amphibious transport dock ship USS Arlington (LPD 24) as it returns home after a seven month deployment.

USS Arlington (LPD 24) arrived at Naval Station Norfolk as part of the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group (KSG ARG) which operates in the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility.

KSG ARG includes Commander, Amphibious Squadron 4, USS Kearsarge (LHD 3), USS Arlington (LPD 24), USS Oak Hill (LSD 51) and 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU).

Upon the group’s return from deployment, USS Kearsarge from May 1-3 embarked sailors’ family members and friends, or “Tigers,” for the opportunity to experience life at sea firsthand when Kearsarge hosted a Tiger Cruise at the end of her seven-month deployment.

Tiger Cruises are a way for the Navy to show friends and family what life on a warship is like, boost morale for both Sailors and Marines and strengthen relationships with the friends and families who support.
