USS Oscar Austin visits Theoule Sur Mer

The US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Oscar Austin (DDG 79) pulled into Theoule Sur Mer, France, for a scheduled port visit on August 14. 

During Oscar Austin’s first time in Theoule Sur Mer, the crew will participate in events commemorating the liberation of southern France by allied forces during World War II.

“Our crew looks forward to this port visit and the enduring relationships we expect to build,” said Cmdr. Janice G. Smith, commanding officer of Oscar Austin “These types of visits allow us to enhance ties with our partners and allow our crew to experience the rich history and culture of France.”

Oscar Austin is on a routine deployment supporting U.S. national security interests in Europe, and increasing theater security cooperation and forward naval presence in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations.
