CHANGI NAVAL BASE, Singapore (NNS) -- Submarine tender USS Emory S. Land (AS 39) arrived in Singapore for a port visit Feb. 11.

"We are honored to visit the beautiful country of Singapore and further strengthen our friendship with the Singapore navy," said Capt. Mark A. Prokopius, commanding officer. "We did an outstanding job as the lead maintenance activity for USS Florida during her continuous maintenance availability in Diego Garcia, and now we look forward to a productive port visit to Changi Naval Base."

While in port, Emory S. Land Sailors will have the opportunity to experience Singapore's natural beauty and surrounding land and seascapes through local tours and Morale, Welfare and Recreation-coordinated events.

Emory S. Land is a forward-deployed expeditionary submarine tender on an extended deployment conducting coordinated tended moorings and afloat maintenance in the U.S. 5th and 7th Fleet areas of operations.
