Welcome aboard the Mount Whitney, the U.S. Navy's finest warship! Mount Whitney is the Navy's only joint command ship and truly in a class by itself. The ship is a self-contained headquarters complex for fleet and joint task force commanders. We have a crew of 325 combined US Navy Sailors and MSC Mariners and can support up to 500 Staff personnel. We deploy anywhere in the EUCOM and CENTCOM AOR's, usually around the Mediterranean and West Africa. Mount Whitney enables a senior staff to command naval, ground, and air operations whenever the need arises.
