USS Carney begins second rotational patrol in U.S. 6th fleet

The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64) departed Naval Station Rota, Spain, July 25 to begin her second forward-deployed patrol in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve and to demonstrate the U.S. commitment to collective defense of allies and partners in the region.

Carney’s forward presence in 6th Fleet supports a wide range of operations in the area and contributes to NATO’s efforts toward maintaining regional security and stability.

“We are excited about beginning our second patrol from Rota, Spain. The crew has worked tirelessly in the past months to ensure that we have a successful patrol. We stand ready to fulfill our mission and demonstrate the U.S. Navy’s commitment to maritime security by working with our partners and allies in the region.”, said Cmdr. Kenneth Pickard, commanding officer, USS Carney (DDG 64).
