Captain Jansen told the press that Bali was the only Indonesian port scheduled for a visit by the ship with carries a complement of 281 officers and enlisted personnel.

Meanwhile, Indonesian Navy officials have confirmed that the USS Benfold will participate in joint training exercises at sea with two Indonesian vessels – KRI Hasan Basr and KRI Uling.
