The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Erie (CG 70) arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Nov. 30.

The ship will visit Hawaii for a port visit following a seven-month independent deployment to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region and the Arabian Gulf in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.

Lake Erie departed San Diego for a regularly scheduled deployment May 11. The crew provided medical evacuation support to a U.S. Army logistics support vessel (LSV) in May and humanitarian assistance in Colombo, Sri Lanka, in June after severe flooding and landslides devastated many regions of the country. They also conducted training and operations with various foreign navies increasing interoperability and improving global working relationships.

Lake Erie is part of Carrier Strike Group 11 and U.S. 3rd Fleet. Third Fleet leads naval forces in the Pacific and provides the realistic, relevant training necessary for an effective global Navy. Third Fleet coordinates with U.S. 7th Fleet to plan and execute missions based on their complementary strengths to promote ongoing peace, security, and stability throughout the Pacific theater of operations.
