USS Truxtun Departs from Muscat, Oman
Guided-missile destroyer USS Truxtun (DDG 103) departed from Muscat, Oman, May 13, after a port visit.
Truxtun received valuable logistics support and technical assistance which will help maintain high material readiness on the ship.
“Truxtun left Muscat in better condition than it arrived thanks to the excellent support we received, and the crew was also able to get some well-earned rest and relaxation,” said Truxtun’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Drew Bates.
Truxtun is deployed as part of the George H.W. Bush Carrier Strike Group supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
