GROTON, Conn.- The newly-commissioned Freedom-class littoral combat ship USS St. Louis (LCS 19) departs from Naval Submarine Base New London July 7. The ship made a brief stop to the base for a replenishment of fuel and supplies before heading to its homeport in Mayport, Florida.

SUBASE and its Sailors continue measures such as increased hygiene protocols, facial coverings, and physical distancing when possible, to mitigate COVID-19 and ensure personnel are healthy and ready to support the essential mission, providing national security and defense when needed.
