The littoral combat ship USS Fort Worth (LCS 3) departs Naval Base San Diego for a scheduled 16-month rotational deployment to Singapore in support of the Navy's strategic rebalance to the Pacific.

It is named "3-2-1" because three rotational crews will support two LCS ships and maintain one deployed ship.
