The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Ross (DDG 71) departed Naval Station Rota, Spain to begin its fifth scheduled forward-deployed patrol in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe April 3.

Ross’s patrol in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations serves to bolster relationships with allies and regional partners, and its participation in theater exercises will contribute toward improving our maritime forces and maintaining security and stability in the region.

Ross is currently working with allies and regional partners to help develop and improve our maritime forces, maintain regional security and work toward mutual goals in order to advance security and stability in Europe.
