Mayor of Split, Croatia Tours USS Mitscher
The Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer USS Mitscher (DDG 57) hosted the Mayor of Split, Croatia, the honorable Ivo Baldasar while in port April 13, 2015.
The port visit serves to strengthen ties between the U.S. and Croatia and improve relations as the two nations work together for a stable, secure and prosperous region.
Mitscher is enroute to its homeport in Norfolk after completing a multi-month deployment to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations. The ship left Norfolk in September 2014.
Mitscher is conducting naval operations in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe.
