Albanian Defense Officials Tour USS Forrest Sherman

The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Forrest Sherman (DDG 98) hosted a reception for senior Albanian defense officials aboard the ship March 31.

The reception was an expression of Forrest Sherman’s appreciation for hosting the ship and her crew in Vlore, and it also served to strengthen the ties between the U.S. and Albania.

Forrest Sherman’s port visit serves to continue U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet’s efforts to strengthen maritime partnerships in order to enhance regional stability. The port visit will include a community relations project and a visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS) training evolution with Albanian military forces.
