USS Shoup to arrive home Monday

EVERETT -- After 10 months at sea, the USS Shoup and its 276-member crew are headed home. The ship is scheduled to arrive at Naval Station Everett on Monday morning.
The Arleigh-Burke class guided-missile destroyer is completing an extended deployment which began Jan. 9 when it left Everett.
The Shoup was assigned to Destroyer Squadron 23 and conducted operations with the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group. The warship took part in exercises, security cooperation and maritime presence operations with partner nations, Navy officials said.
"It has been a long, task-filled deployment," said Cmdr. Jill Cesari, Shoup's commanding officer, in a statement from the Navy. "The crew performed superbly across a myriad of missions."
USS Shoup was commissioned June 22, 2002, in Seattle, and is named after Gen. David Monroe Shoup, a World War II Medal of Honor recipient.
The aircraft carrier Nimitz is scheduled to return home before Christmas. It left Everett on March 30 with its 3,000-member crew and later was joined by its air wing and crew of 2,000.
In September, the Shoup and the Nimitz had their deployments extended when the Navy beefed up its presence in the Persian Gulf region as the U.S.considered a military strike on Syria.
