Submarine USS Mississippi makes it to Republic of Korea

JACKSON, Miss.- On June 13, the USS Mississippi submarine arrived at Busan, South Korea as part of its deployment to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

The Virginia-class attack sub holds a crew of 141 sailors and will be apart of several missions while on their voyage.

Cmdr. Eric Rozed, The USS Mississippi’s Commanding Officer, saidthe stop is a great opportunity for crew members to call home after several weeks at sea. It also allows for continued relations with Korea, one of the United States Western Pacific partners.

The USS Mississippi is more than 360 feet long and when under water displaces around 7,000 tons of weight. It is considered one of the most technologically advanced and stealthiest submarines in the world.

While docked in Korea, sailors will volunteer off-duty hours to joint military-to-military community relations. Those assignments include recreation activities at a local orphanage and facility maintenance.
