    USS Pearl Harbor at Pearl Harbor

    The San Diego-based USS Pearl Harbor has wrapped up a seven-month deployment, but before heading home, the crew is spending a few days visiting the port the ship is named after.

    Sailors manned the rails as the ship pulled into Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii. Sailors manned the rails and looked out toward the USS Arizona, a monument to the more than 2,000 people whose lives were lost when Japanese forces launched a devastating surprise attack on the Pacific Fleet on Dec. 7, 1941.

    The USS Pearl Harbor will spend the next few days in Hawaii, along with the USS Peleliu and USS Dubuque. The Marines and sailors with the Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group are expected to return to San Diego around Dec. 17.
