USS Peleliu deployment delayed

The dock landing ship USS Pearl Harbor is scheduled to leave San Diego Thursday on a regularly scheduled deployment of the USS Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group to the Western Pacific.

But due to maintenance reasons, the amphibious assault ship Peleliu will not depart Thursday as scheduled, and instead will leave sometime this weekend, according to Naval Surface Forces public affairs.

The amphibious transport dock USS Dubuque departed on Tuesday.

The Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group consists of more than 3,000 sailors and marines. The Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group recently wrapped up an at-sea training exercise to prepare for the deployment.

Also departing with the Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group are Marines with the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, Assault Craft Unit One, Tactical Air Control Squadron 11 and a fleet surgical team, according to the Navy.
