USS Carney Starts First 6th Fleet Patrol

US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64) departed Naval Station Rota, Spain November 7, 2015, to begin its first forward-deployed patrol in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations.

Carney’s patrol will enhance the security in the European theater, while operating in support of NATO ballistic missile defense and Operation Atlantic Resolve.

The ship is expected to perform numerous missions including maritime security operations, bi-lateral and multi-lateral training exercises, and NATO operations and exercises.

Carney, the last of four Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers to be forward deployed in the U.S. 6th Fleet, arrived in Rota September 25, 2015.
