Final US Navy Destroyer Deploys to Rota, Spain

The USS Carney (DDG 64) departed her homeport of Mayport, Florida, Sept. 6 on her way to Rota, Spain, as the final of four Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers to be forward deployed to Spain.

To enhance the security of the European region, Carney will join USS Donald Cook (DDG 75), USS Ross (DDG 71), and USS Porter (DDG 78) who have already made the transition to Spain.

These multi-mission ships perform a myriad of tasks including NATO missile defense, the full spectrum of maritime security operations, bi-lateral and multi-lateral training exercises, and other NATO operations and deployments.
