GOA, India -- Guided-missile destroyer USS Momsen (DDG 92) arrived in Goa, India, April 23 for a scheduled port visit.

Sailors aboard Momsen will be able to experience a new culture and appreciate all that India has to offer.

For many Sailors, this port visit will be their first time in India.

“I can’t wait to see the architecture in Goa,” says Sonar Technician (Surface) 3rd Class Jacob Lynch, from Albuquerque, New Mexico. “I love history, so I am excited to have the chance to see some of the important churches and landmarks in the area. We also plan to go hiking and see the natural side of the area, too. Of course, I am just as excited to try some new foods. I joined the Navy to travel, and now I’m going to be in an entirely new country. It’s one of the perks of the job.”

The Momsen’s arrival provides opportunity for Sailors to engage with the culture and community of Goa.

The Momsen is deployed to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Pacific region.
