Recommended Posts

Amphibious warship USS John P. Murtha (LPD-26) is back in San Diego to fix an unspecified maintenance issue after departing on deployment last week, USNI News has learned.

Ship spotters saw the 25,000-ton warship entering San Diego harbor on Tuesday. Murtha left San Diego on Nov. 9 for its deployment as part of the Makin Island Amphibious Ready Group.

A spokesperson for Expeditionary Strike Group 3 told USNI News the warship was back in port to “evaluate a maintenance issue.” The spokesperson did not have additional details on the mechanical issue.
