USS Ross Returns to Rota
ROTA, Spain – The Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Ross (DDG 71) returned to Rota, Spain after conducting a four month long patrol that began in July 2016.
"This has been an incredible patrol which has reaffirmed our commitment to our allies and partner nations in the region. I couldn't be more proud of our crew and their remarkable professionalism they have shown over the past four months and I think every one is looking forward to a little down time with their families."
"We have had a very successful patrol supporting our partner and allied nations with various exercises and operations throughout the Mediterranean and Black Seas. I feel this was a very challenging patrol but our sailors were more than ready for the task at hand and I am happy that we are heading home with everyone safe aboard."
