After 5 years, the crew of USS Frank Cable is quite happy to be back home in the United States; even more excited that their first stop is Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

Frank Cable's crew expressed joy for the more convenient time zones that allow communicating with family and loved ones much easier. The Emory S. Land-class submarine tender's true destination is scheduled dry-dock maintenance availability in the not-so tropical city of Portland, Oregon, so for some, the necessary stop at JBPHH is a special kind of homecoming.

Thanks to the efforts of Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR), the sailors will have the chance to experience a little of their South Pacific environment during off time. Some of the sailors will even be taking the opportunity to remember those lost on December 7, 1941 at the USS Arizona Memorial. 

"For many, this is their first time visiting," Cmdr. Tony Pecoraro told Navy Public Affairs. "I hope they enjoy the historic sites like Pearl Harbor, and embrace the warm 'aloha spirit' of the Hawaiian people."
