Guam - The USS Emory S. Land will be on Guam for the next six months. The ship will be covering for the USS Frank Cable, which will be headed back to the US mainland for routine maintenance. She's based out of Diego Garcia and currently has 400 personnel including sailors, Merchant Marines and the Military Sealift Command.

Commanding Officer Paul Savage says she's one of the Navy's last two submarine tenders they have today. "The Emory S. Land is here to seamlessly transition submarine maintenance mission here in Guam, so our job is to support the submarines home ported here and support, repair, maintenance and supply the submarines that deploy to the Western Pacific," he explained.

The ship is named after Navy Vice Admiral Emory Land, who designed and developed submarines that form the backbone of the US submarine fleet in World War II.
