Another Navy ship sent to Mediterranean to boost NATO in challenging Russia

Recommended Posts

A U.S.-based Navy destroyer is headed to the Mediterranean Sea, making it the latest U.S. ship deployed to that theater in the past several months as NATO steps up to deter Russian aggression.

USS Forrest Sherman left its homeport in Norfolk, Va., on Saturday to serve as the flagship of Standing NATO Maritime Group 2, the Navy said in a statement Saturday.

The deployment includes presence operations and participation in exercises, according to the statement.
