After 15 years of service in the Western Pacific, accomplishing a number of disaster-relief missions and freedom-of-navigation operations, the USS Mustin has been relieved of duty and scheduled to sail back home.

The work will start at the beginning of 2022. The Navy expects the project will two years to complete. The USS Mustin is currently traveling from its former homeport of Yokosuka to the naval base of San Diego.

According to Commander Nicole Schwegman, a Pacific Fleet spokeswoman, work will begin early next year and will take at least two years for completion. However, she made it apparent that repairs and upgrades are classified, and she could not disclose any information.

“Planned maintenance availabilities like these are critical to ensuring ships are maintained and equipped to perform combat-ready tasking when called upon and achieve their expected service life,” Cmdr. Schwegman said.

The USS Ralph Johnson is to fill in for the USS Mustin’s absence in the Western Pacific, 7th Fleet spokesman Lt. Mark Langford said. The arrival of the USS Ralph is unclear; the Navy is always careful with details of ship movements in advance due to security reasons.

The USS Mustin honors the Mustin family, who established an honorable tradition of naval service. The tradition is significant to officers who were exceptionally creative innovators.

Generations of the Musin family built a legacy to the Navy service, lasting from 1896 to 1989.
