Did you or a loved one serve on The USS Saipan LHA-2?


The USS SAIPAN (LHA-2), a Tarawa class amphibious assault ship, was commissioned on 15 OCT 1977. USS SAIPAN served her country for 29 years, 6 months and 10 days, until decommissioned on 25 APR 2007. USS SAIPAN's first major deployment was the August 1980 through February 1981 North Atlantic - Mediterranean - Indian Ocean voyage while the Iranian Hostage Crisis was underway. That set the stage for her career. From her homeport of Norfolk, VA, she under took numerous MEDS, CARIBS and North Atlantic deployments. USS SAIPAN participated in special/contingency operations in Nicaragua, the Cuban Mariel boat lift, Grenada, Liberia, Yugoslavia and Operation Iraqi Freedom. She was decommissioned in 2007.
