USS Chicago Returns From Deployment

USS Chicago (SSN 721) returned to Pearl Harbor following a six month WestPac on Tuesday; they had departed on 29 November 05. They got liberty visits to Guam, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong... at least Hong Kong was probably pretty interesting. I'm sure they'll get some baby-holding photos up soon on the Navy website (like this one from the CSP website that seems to be of Chicago Sailors returning, but is inexplicably labelled, at least as of Thursday evening, as being of USS La Jolla Sailors departing), but until then, they have this famous picture of Chicago as a placeholder:

Welcome home, guys...

Update 0028 03 June: They fixed the text under the photo of the Chicago Sailor with his family.

Yes, we do. SPGs also speak better English than those in (now Communist) Hong Kong.

In Hong Kong, you know you're "someplace else". Not so much with Singapore...

Oh you know you are someplace else when in Singapore. The streets are clean, the food safe and cheap, and the only fat women you see are westerners.......In fact you neck gets sore from turning your head so much watching the beautiful women walking around......

And then there is Chijmes........
