That’s right. The US Navy guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain also docked at Tien Sa Port in Danang, Vietnam.

Think about that.

HANOI—Two U.S. warships this week docked at Cam Ranh Bay, in the first such port call at the Vietnamese naval base since the two countries normalized relations 21 years ago, the U.S. Navy said Tuesday.

Submarine tender USS Frank Cable and guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain arrived at the deep-water naval base in Khanh Hoa province on Sunday, in a sign of warming military ties between the two countries.

Cam Ranh Bay was used by the French, U.S. and Russian navies in years past. Vietnam has recently made the base available to visiting foreign navy vessels in an attempt to maintain a strong international presence in the South China Sea amid maritime disputes with China. Apart from the U.S. warships, vessels from Japan, Russia and France have recently docked there.
