HONG KONG – The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin (DDG 89) arrived in Hong Kong for a port visit, April 30.

During the stay, Mustin Sailors will be involved in several community service projects, as well as enjoying the sights sounds of one of the world’s major metropolises.

“Mustin is excited to have the opportunity to visit Hong Kong and experience all that this world-famous city has to offer,” said Cmdr. Joseph A. Torres Jr., Mustin‘s commanding officer. “We are looking forward to enjoying the rich culture and remarkable hospitality that make Hong Kong one of our absolute favorite ports of call.”

Many Sailors aboard Mustin were also planning to attend tours provided by Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation to include sightseeing, dinner cruises, and cultural tours.

“Hong Kong is always one of my favorite ports,” said Ship’s Serviceman 3rd Class Christopher Garcia from Houston.  “I’m going on a cultural heritage tour, and I’m excited to see a monastery in Hong Kong. It’s such a great opportunity to experience another culture.”
