USS Shiloh Departs Singapore

By Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Abby Rader USS Shiloh Public Affairs

The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67) departed Singapore following a scheduled port visit from June 25-29. “Visiting Singapore was a fantastic opportunity for us,” said Capt. Kurush Morris, Shiloh’s commanding officer.  “The port visit allowed us to experience the cultural diversity of the people of Singapore, work with the Singapore Navy, and enjoy some well-deserved relaxation.  On a personal level, I was able to visit members of my extended family who have lived in Singapore for many years." While in port, Sailors took part in a variety of activities that allowed them to meet with the people of Singapore and experience the rich local culture and history. Sailors also had the opportunity to participate in a community relations (COMREL) project. The COMREL allowed Sailors to interact with members of the local community by providing assistance to members of the Asian Women’s Welfare Association Students Meet for Interaction, Learning Enrichment Services and the children they provide service to.            “It was really rewarding, to be able to work with the children,” said Fire Controlman 3rd Class Tory May. “It’s hard for us to realize how hard it is to live without being able to do everything we do every day. This has been my best experience here so far.” Along with events like the COMREL, Sailors assigned to Shiloh also were able to go out and explore Singapore on their own. “That was my first time here,” said Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Evan Abrahamsen. “I went around and saw a lot of sights, and had a lot of fun in Singapore.” Shiloh is currently on patrol with the George Washington Carrier Strike Group in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility supporting of security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
