Two US warships dock at Subic
SUBIC BAY FREEPORT—Two warships belonging to a carrier strike group of the United States Navy arrived here on Saturday for a routine port visit.
Guided-missile destroyers USS Chung-Hoon (DDG-93) and USS William P. Lawrence (DDG-110) docked at the Alava Pier inside this free port at around 9 a.m.
The ships are part of the John C. Stennis Strike Group (JCSSG) that is currently patrolling the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).
The strike group arrived in the country three days after two Chinese fighter jets intercepted a US military reconnaissance aircraft in a routine patrol in the international airspace over the West Philippine Sea this week. IDL
