About the Arctic Gator...


Homeport: Naval Base San Diego, CA


USS Anchorage (LPD-23), the seventh San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock, is the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for Anchorage, Alaska and the first U.S. Navy ship to be commissioned in Alaska.


The San Antonio-class is the first class of ship equipped with a state-of-the-art fiber-optic Shipboard Wide Area Network (SWAN). Its design provides computer and network access linking every manned space on the ship, to include troop/crew berthing. The SWAN’s design also allows for future growth over the life of the ship as technology advances. Over 760 SWAN drops (i.e. access points) will support computer workstations or other uses throughout the ship.


Anchorage's keel was laid down on September 24, 2007 at the Avondale Shipyard in New Orleans, Louisiana, then owned by Northrop Grumman Ship Systems. The ship was launched on February 12, 2011. She was christened two months later, May 14 - the first ship christened by Huntington Ingalls Industries since Northrop Grumman spun off its shipbuilding divisions as a separate company. The ship's sponsor is Annette Conway, wife of former Marine Corps Commandant General James T. Conway. The ship was formally delivered and accepted by the US Navy on September 17, 2012.


On November 21, 2012 the Pre-Commissioning Unit Anchorage (LPD 23) moored pierside for the first time at her homeport in San Diego during a homecoming ceremony.

The Anchorage was commissioned on May 4, 2013 in her namesake city ...
