The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109) arrived in Gdynia, Poland, for a scheduled port visit, May 6, 2015.
Jason Dunham’s presence in Poland reaffirms to NATO allies that the U.S. Navy shares a commitment to strengthen ties while working toward mutual goals of promoting peace and stability in the Baltic region.
Jason Dunham’s commanding officer is scheduled to meet with military and local officials, including Capt. Grudziński, Deputy Commander of the Polish 3rd Flotilla, Rear Adm. Stanisław Zarychta, Commander of the Polish Maritime Operations Center, and the mayor of Gdynia.
Strengthening alliances during the port visit to Gdynia demonstrates the shared commitment the U.S. has toward promoting safety and stability within the region, while seeking opportunities to enhance interoperability with its NATO allies and partners.
