History:
The second USS Nassau (LHA-4) is a Tarawa-class amphibious assault ship. She is capable of transporting over 3,000 Navy and Marine Corps personnel. Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi, laid Nassau's keel on August 13, 1973 and the Navy commissioned her on July 28, 1979.

In February, 1984, less than four months after the Beirut barracks bombing, the USS Nassau was deployed to Beirut with the 24th Marine Amphibious Unit.

In support of Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm, USS Nassau deployed to the Middle East for over eight months on only eight days notice. Upon leaving the United States, USS Nassau became the Flagship for Commander, Amphibious Task Force and the 4th MEB's Commanding General. In the last week of the war she was employed as a "Harrier Carrier" tasked with operating primarily as a STOVL attack carrier for Marine AV-8B Harrier II fighters.
