Guam - Dozens of family members and friends welcomed the USS Key West on Naval Base Guam this afternoon. The Los Angeles Class attack submarine arrived to Guam from its previous port in Pearl Harbor. Joint Region Marianas Commander Rear Admiral Tilghman Payne gave the welcoming remarks during today's ceremony.

The submarine's deployment here allows freedom of action, regional, engagement, crisis response and deterrence while helping to fulfill commitments to U.S. allies and partners to protect our nation's security. The USS Key West is replacing the USS Buffalo, which is finalizing its transition from Guam to Hawaii by early next year.
