USS Porter Exits Black Sea
The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Porter (DDG 78) departed the Black Sea Sept. 1, 2017 after conducting maritime security operations and theater security engagements with allies and partners.
“Our time in the Black Sea provided the opportunity to continue working closely with NATO allies and partners. We’re building strong relationships here, which are crucial to peace and stability in the region. Our presence here bolsters confidence and reassures allies of our commitment to security in the Black Sea.”
- Cmdr. John Tobin, commanding officer, USS Porter
