USS Ohio Hosts Royal Malaysian Navy

By Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Zachary A. Kreitzer

SEPANGGAR, Malaysia (NNS) -- Sailors from the guided-missile submarine USS Ohio (SSGN 726) gave a tour to Sailors of the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) and Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), while in Sepanggar, Malaysia, Nov. 17.

The purpose of the tour was to give Malaysian sailors a look into how U.S. submariners live and work aboard one of the largest submarines in the U.S. Navy.

"We wanted to know how the U.S. submarines operate," said Sub Lt. Syehmi Rohani of the MMEA. "We were very interested to know how you guys operate and live inside the submarine."

While aboard, the Malaysian Sailors were shown the torpedo room, battle management center, main control center, missile control center, diesel generator, dry dock shelters, medical and crew's mess.

"The U.S. has sub capabilities that no other country has in the world," said Master Chief Fire Control Technician William Greene, Ohio's chief of the boat. "To let them get a glimpse of what that looks like and what we have to bring to the table as a partner, I think is important. This breaks the ground for more working together in the future."

USS Emory S. Land (AS 39) and Ohio's visit to Malaysia continues the U.S. Navy's ongoing commitment to theater security, cooperation and friendship with local partner navies.

Emory S. Land is a forward deployed expeditionary submarine tender on an extended deployment conducting coordinated tended moorings and afloat maintenance in the U.S. 5th and 7th Fleet areas of operations.
