Trio of U.S. Navy Ships Deploy From San Diego to Middle East

A trio of U.S. Navy ships will deploy from San Diego Friday with a combined 4,500 service members on board all bound for the western Pacific and Middle East.

The vessels include amphibious assault ship, USS Makin Island, amphibious transport dock ship, USS Somerset, and amphibious dock landing ship, USS Comstock.

USS Comstock was the first to deploy at 8 a.m. The two other ships will leave from Naval Base San Diego at 12 p.m. and 1 p.m.
Loved ones of the thousands of Marines and sailors aboard the ships gathered at Naval Base San Diego to say their goodbyes – a very difficult day in the life of military families.
