SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine – The guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea arrived in Sevastopol, Oct. 21, for a regularly scheduled port visit to continue U.S. 6th Fleet efforts to build global maritime partnerships with European nations and enhance maritime safety and security.

While in port, the crew will host a formal reception giving the officers and crew a chance to meet with national and local civil and military leaders.

“These receptions are a way for the crew to thank the hosting country for the hospitality they show us every day we are in port,” said Capt. Herbert Hadley, Philippine Sea’s commanding officer. “They are essential in maintaining the bonds our countries have with one another.”

Some members of the crew will spend their time inport giving back to the local community through a service project, at a local maternity clinic.

“It’s service to the community that really show humanity,” said Command Chaplain Lt. Jonathan Black. “It is important to lend a hand where a hand is needed. It’s a simple act of goodwill that Sailors can offer to the people that open their ports and allow us to enjoy what they have to offer.”

Philippine Sea’s crew will have several chances to train and interact with their Ukrainian counterparts during the port visit.

“This is a great opportunity for our two militaries,” said Command Master Chief Scott Kircher. “Both nations have the opportunity to learn valuable skills that when put into use will help maintain maritime security throughout the Black Sea Region.”

Philippine Sea is conducting this port visit as part of a scheduled deployment to the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility.
