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.”
