USS John S. McCain, Home port: Yokosuka, Japan

USS John S McCain, Fortune Favors The Brave

Welcome Aboard!
Congratulations on your orders to USS John S. McCain DDG-56! Named in honor of Admiral John S. McCain Sr. and Admiral John S. McCain Jr., this Arleigh Burke Class, Aegis guided missile destroyer is the third commissioned warship to carry the name "John S. McCain." Our officers and crew take great pride and stewardship of John S. McCain's superior reputation. We look forward to your membership on our winning team!

USS John S. McCain is home ported in Yokosuka, Japan. As a member of Commander, U.S. Seventh Fleet's forward deployed naval forces (FDNF), you can expect a very high operational tempo throughout the Western Pacific. You can also expect a very rewarding tour on board.

While underway, the crew wears coveralls. I recommend obtaining two or three sets prior to your arrival...

Fortune Favors the Brave!

CDR Scott B. Hattaway, USS John S mcCain Commanding Officer
