The San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship USS Mesa Verde (LPD 19) anchored off the coast of Corfu, Greece, for a scheduled port visit, Oct. 30.
This is Mesa Verde's first port visit in 65 days of operations in the Mediterranean Sea.
"It's good to have everyone recharge their batteries," said Cmdr. John P. Pienkowski, Mesa Verde's executive officer. "It also gives a chance to see a new port and enjoy the different culture. It's a chance to be [goodwill] ambassadors for the United States. We can exchange ideas and be exposed to a different culture and learn from each other."
