From Ensign Rhianna Cole

The guided-missile destroyer arrived in Port Klang, outside of the capital of Kuala Lumpur, for a port visit Feb. 7.

PORT KLANG, Malaysia - After transiting the Singapore Strait and passing the John C. Stennis Strike Group along the way, the guided-missile destroyer USS Milius (DDG 69) arrived in Port Klang, just outside of the capital of Kuala Lumpur, Feb. 7 for a much anticipated port visit.

Upon arrival, the ship was greeted by members of the Royal Malaysian Navy, Port Klang Authority and the National Hydrographic Centre.

During their time in Malaysia, the crew has been invited to compete in a soccer match against the Royal Malaysian Navy as well as numerous events around town to include city tours to see the sights and experience the exceptional culture.

"The Sailors and I are extremely thankful and very excited for the opportunity to visit and explore Malaysia," said Milius Commanding Officer Cmdr. Nicholie Bufkin. "We have been welcomed with great hospitality."

Milius is a ship assigned to the John C. Stennis Strike Group on an independent seven-month deployment in support of the Global War on Terrorism.
