The U.S. 6th Fleet command and control ship USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20) arrived in Lisbon, Portugal, on November 1, for a scheduled port visit and embarkation of Naval Striking and Support Forces NATO personnel.
While in Portugal, Mount Whitney’s crew will take the opportunity to host distinguished guests and city officials at a dinner reception scheduled to take place aboard the ship.
After the crew wraps up their embarkation and port visit, Mount Whitney will get underway to continue operating forward in the 6th Fleet area of responsibility.
Mount Whitney, forward-deployed to Gaeta, Italy, operates with a combined crew of U.S. Navy Sailors and Military Sealift Command civil service mariners.
