Navy's futuristic destroyer glides past Chinese warships, docks in San Diego - The San Diego Union-Tribune: Sailors lined the decks of the Zumwalt’s neighbors at Pier 12 — the amphibious warships Anchorage and New Orleans, the destroyers Milius and Wayne E. Meyer — to watch the new ship’s arrival. Serenaded by a Navy band, more than 500 family members awaited the Zumwalt and its 147-member crew as well.
On its way into San Diego Naval Base, the Zumwalt passed the Chinese frigates Yancheng and Daqing and the oiler Tai Hu, which were docked at the Embarcadero for a port call.
The Zumwalt is part of a buildup of American warships on the West Coast, a military pivot to the Pacific Rim that’s designed to deter war with a rising and increasingly aggressive China.
