Constanta, Romania is US destroyer’s first Black Sea port call

After entering the Black Sea on August 18, the crew of the US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Porter (DDG 78) will be visiting Romania on the first port call of their Black Sea deployment.

After conducting a replenishment at sea with the Turkish Navy replenishment oiler TCG YB. Kudret (A 595) on August 19, USS Porter traveled to Constanta, Romania, entering the port on August 22.

After a three-day stay at port’s passenger terminal, the destroyer is set to get underway for naval exercises with ships from the Romanian Navy.

Starting on August 24, USS Porter will conduct four days of exercises with Romanian warships which will include the Rear-Admiral Eustațiu Sebastian-class corvette “Horia Macellariu” (F-265).

This is the destroyer’s fourth visit to Romania with the first one taking place in 2006.
