MANILA, Philippines–The command ship of the United States 7th Fleet will dock at the Manila South Harbor on Thursday for a routine port call.

In a statement, the US Embassy said the USS Blue Ridge (LCC-19) will make a port call and goodwill visit “that highlights the strong historic, community and military connections between United States and the Philippines.”

The US ship is currently forward-deployed to US Navy Fleet Activities in Yokosuka, Japan.
