Brisbane, Australia was the birthplace of U.S. 7th Fleet on March 15, 1943. But did you know it holds special significance to Submarine Group 7 as the location of the world's only "Submariners Walk," dedicated to Submariners of all nations who have given their service, and in many cases their lives, to the defense of freedom and the protection of the Indo-Pacific for the last 75 years. #7thfleet75, #heritage, COMSUBPAC

Mississippi Visits Yokosuka for the 2nd Time during Current Deployment
Story by LT. j.g. Jordan Hamilton, USS Mississippi Public Affairs Officer
FLEET ACTIVITIES YOKOSUKA, Japan- The Virginia-class attack submarine USS Mississippi (SSN 782) arrived at Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Jan. 22 for a routine visit as part of its deployment to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
“It is great to be back in Yokosuka,” said, Cmdr. Eric J. Rozek, commanding officer.
After two months at sea, this port visit marks Mississippi’s 2nd time in Japan during its current deployment.
“Yokosuka is a great port to visit,” said Master Chief Machinists Mate (Auxiliary Equipment) Amanuel S. McMillan, Mississippi’s chief of the boat. “It provides an opportunity for the crew to get some great food and take in the sights. I am always pleased to see a port visit on the schedule so that my Sailors can get the time to call family members, shop at local stores, and relax after a long underway because they have earned it,”
Mississippi is one of the most technologically advanced and stealthiest submarines in the world and is capable of fulfilling a multitude of missions. Mississippi is home ported in Pearl Harbor.
