PEARL HARBOR, HI (Sept. 11, 2007) -- Visitors on board the USS Arizona Memorial watch as a tugboat assigned to Naval Station Pearl Harbor assists the San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock USS New Orleans (LPD 18) moor pier side at Fleet and Industrial Supply Center piers in Pearl Harbor. New Orleans was commissioned March 10, 2007 in New Orleans, is home ported in San Diego, Calif. and is currently in Pearl Harbor providing an opportune lift for Sailors and service members assigned to the Hawaii region.  The opportune lift allows Sailors, service members and their families to save money by providing an alternative method of transporting privately owned vehicles between the mainland and Hawaii.
