The warship is based in San Diego, California.

There are over 300 crewmembers and two helicopters on board.

American consular agent, Christopher Kozely suggests that upon the ship's call, everyone should ask American sailors in for dinner "and give them an opportunity to meet and share with Tahitian people."
