|THE SUBMARINE TENDER USS Emory S. Land (AS 39)|
SUBIC FREEPORT, Zambales — The submarine tender USS Emory S. Land (AS 39) arrived in the Philippines last week for a port visit at Subic Bay.
Emory S. Land’s visit to the Philippines continues the U.S. Navy’s ongoing commitment to theater security, cooperation and bilateral partnership.
During its 30-day visit, the ship’s crew is having the opportunity to participate in multiple subject matter expert exchanges with the Philippine Navy, community relations events and some well-deserved liberty.
Emory S. Land is a forward-deployed expeditionary submarine tender on a routine deployment conducting coordinated tended moorings and afloat maintenance in the U.S. 5th and 7th Fleet areas of responsibility.
