Higgins is homeported in San Diego. It is the 26th ship in the Arleigh Burke class of guided missile destroyers and the first ship in the Navy named after Marine Corps Col. William R. Higgins. The ship was commissioned in 1999 and has nearly 300 sailors assigned to it.
Higgins helps provide deterrence, promote peace and security, preserve freedom of the sea and humanitarian/disaster response within 3rd Fleet's 50-million square mile area of responsibility in the Eastern Pacific, as well as supporting the Navy's Maritime Strategy when forward deployed. (PR)
