~~<p>The amphibious ship USS Denver, which has supported U.S. expeditionary forces in the Asia-Pacific region for more than 40 years, will be decommissioned in Pearl Harbor on Sept. 30.</p>
<p>&ldquo;The Denver has performed dutifully in its mission to safeguard America&rsquo;s interests in the Asia Pacific and it is only fitting that she be decommissioned at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, ensuring a steady tempo of work for our civilian and military naval engineers,&rdquo; U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz&rsquo;s office said last week in a news release. &ldquo;Hawaii will continue to play a key role in the Asia-Pacific rebalancing, which will be good for our workforce and local economy.&rdquo;</p>
