USS Mount Whitney, a command ship of the U.S. Navy, is arriving in Muuga harbor on Saturday. The Mount Whitney served as the command ship of the Baltops 2019 exercise, which ended a little over a week ago. According to Capt. Cassidy C. Norman, the ship's crew is looking forward to a few days' well-deserved shore leave.

The Mount Whitney is one of two Blue Ridge-class amphibious command ships of the U.S. Navy, and has been the flagship of the United States Sixth Fleet since 2005.
