Batumi, Georgia Welcomes USS Laboon

The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Laboon (DDG 58) arrived in Batumi, Georgia, for a scheduled port visit, June 26.

Laboon’s presence in Georgia reaffirms to partner countries that the U.S. Navy shares a commitment to the common goal of promoting security and stability within the region, while enhancing the interoperability between partner countries.

Laboon is currently operating in the Black Sea, working with allies and regional partners to help develop and improve our maritime forces, maintain regional security, and work towards mutual goals in order to advance security and stability in Europe.

USS Laboon, homeported in Norfolk, Virginia, is conducting naval operations in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe. The ship deployed from Naval Station Norfolk in February 2015.
