The USS Buffalo has been homeported in Guam. The fast attack Los Angeles Class submarine arrived on Guam July 19 after being previously homeported in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The USS Buffalo will hold a change of command ceremony tomorrow relieving Commander Rian Humm by Commander Scott Pappano, who recently served at the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
The USS Buffalo is an integral part of the Navy's ability to provide forward presence and project power around the word. The buffalo with its stealth speed endurance flexibility and state of the art combat systems can perform traditional sea control operations as well as stride targets on the shore.
The Buffalo now joins the USS City of Corpus Christi and the USS Houston at Apra Harbor.
