The ship, made up of over 100 marines, including Marine Light Attack Helicopter squad onboard and navy crews, arrived in Port Moresby on Tuesday morning, after 10 days at sea from their home base in Sasebo, Japan.

The USS Green Bay (Landing Platform Deck 20), is named after the City of Green Bay, Wisconsin, the smallest city to host an American Football team, and is the only team to be owned by its fans.

It has also been used for humanitarian missions in providing aid like it did after the South Asian Tsunami in 2004.
