USS Nitze Docks at Naval Station Norfolk

Guided-missile destroyer USS Nitze (DDG 94) returned to Naval Station Norfolk July 15 following a nearly eight-month deployment in the 6th Fleet Area of Operations.

 

Nitze entered the theater in December, 2013 via the Mediterranean Sea and Suez Canal. Her crew conducted maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts there, and remained off the Horn of Africa for the majority of her deployment.

The crew spent more than 200 days at sea and conducted three port visits in support of maritime partnerships with Seychelles, Italy and Mauritius.
