2 Minesweeping Ships Arrive In San Diego

Posted: Updated:

Two Navy ships have arrived at their new home port of San Diego Friday, as part of a Navy plan to save money.

The anti-mine ships USS Chief and USS Warrior were previously homeported in Ingleside, Texas. But the Ingleside base is being closed as part of a consolidation process.

Now, the ships and some 170 sailors have been relocated to America's Finest City.

Six more Texas-based ships will be arriving in San Diego by the end of the summer.
