US destroyer USS John Finn returns San Diego from maiden deployment

The US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS John Finn (DDG-113) has returned to San Diego after the vessel’s maiden deployment.

The US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS John Finn (DDG-113) has returned to San Diego after the vessel’s maiden deployment.

The DDG-113 vessel returned to San Diego on 2 April.

John Finn is part of the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group.

The primary mission of the destroyer is aimed at conducting maritime security operations to ensure a ‘free and open Indo-Pacific’.

Carrier Strike Group Nine commander Rear Admial Doug Verissimo said: “John Finn’s performance during her maiden deployment has been nothing short of phenomenal.

“The captain and his crew should be incredibly proud of the job their team did, seamlessly integrating into the strike group and exceeding every expectation. I’m so proud to have them as a member of Team Fury.”

Last month, John Finn performed a transit through the Taiwan Strait. The routine Taiwan Strait transit was conducted on 10 March in agreement with international law.

In February, USS John Finn participated in dual carrier with Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group (TRCSG) and Nimitz Carrier Strike Group that demonstrated the tactical capabilities of two carrier strike groups ‘operating jointly’.

According to US Navy, the Service’s 3rd Fleet leads Indo-Pacific region’s region naval forces.

This fleet provides the ‘realistic, relevant training’ necessary to execute Navy’s sea control and power projection roles.

The US 3rd Fleet works in close cooperation with other numbered fleets to provide commanders with ready to deploy assets.
