The guided-missile cruiser USS Chosin is deploying from Hawaii to the western Pacific Ocean.

The Navy says the Chosin will provide deterrence and humanitarian assistance while deployed.

The ship is scheduled to leave Pearl Harbor today.

The Chosin is named in commemoration of the First Marine Division’s heroism at the Chosin Reservoir during the Korean War.

The guided missile cruiser is equipped to combat threats from under water, from the air and from other surface ships. It’s capable of operating in support of carrier strike groups, amphibious forces or of operating independently.
