Welcome


Welcome aboard and congratulations on your orders to USS Kearsarge (LHD 3), the best amphibious assault ship in the fleet!  Kearsarge is the third ship of the Wasp-class multipurpose amphibious assault ships. Our mission is to embark, deploy, land and support a Marine landing force. The ship was specifically designed to accommodate air cushion, landing craft (LCAC) for fast troop movement over the beach and AV-8B Harrier aircraft to provide close-in air support for the assault force. Kearsarge can also carry up to 26 Navy/USMC helicopters for troop movement, air support, and search-and-rescue movements.

We look forward to your arrival. USS Kearsarge - Proud, Trustworthy, BOLD!
