USS Hopper docks in Colombo, Sri Lanka

U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Hopper (DDG 70) arrived in Colombo, Sri Lanka, for a visit on January 19.

During their four-day visit, the crew will have the opportunity to engage with members of the Sri Lanka Navy and public.

The visit also provides the opportunity for the crew of Hopper to thank the Sri Lanka Navy for their support in providing medical treatment to a Hopper crew member in September.

Hopper is a multi-mission ship with anti-air warfare, anti-submarine warfare, and anti-surface warfare surface combatants capabilities; designed to operate independently or with a surface action group or strike group.

Homeported in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Hopper is on deployment in the Indo-Asia-Pacific after recently completing operations in U.S. 5th Fleet.
