The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Laboon (DDG 58) was scheduled to arrive in the Black Sea on June 21 to promote peace and stability in the region.
Laboon’s presence in the Black Sea will serve to reaffirm the U.S. dedication and commitment toward strengthening the partnerships and joint operational capabilities amongst U.S., NATO and regional Baltic Sea partners.
USS Laboon (DDG 58) entered the Black Sea in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.
The vessel, homeported in Norfolk, Va., is on a routine patrol conducting naval operations with allies and partners in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations in order to advance security and stability in the Black Sea region.
