A United States Los Angeles-class attack submarine, USS Greeneville (SSN 772) has arrived in Subic Bay August 5 for a port visit as part of its Indo-Asia-Pacific deployment, United States Pacific Command said.
USS Greeneville is more than 360 feet long and weighs more than 6,900 tons when submerged. It was christened September 17, 1994 and commissioned February 16, 1996 at Naval Station Norfolk. Greeneville arrived at its current homeport of Pearl Harbor in March 1997. 
The submarine’s commanding officer Cmdr. Gabriel Anseeuw said “our Filipino partners are very important to us. I wish we could spend more time here, but our work remains at sea.”
