USS Momsen returns to Everett after 7 months

EVERETT — The USS Momsen is scheduled to return to Naval Station Everett on Thursday after a seven-month deployment.

The Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer was deployed in April to the western Pacific Ocean and Oceania for the first Pacific Surface Action Group mission. The group consisted of other U.S. destroyers and ships from the navies of Japan, South Korea, Australia and France, alongside U.S. Air Force and Marine Corps personnel.

The group conducted routine patrols, maritime security operations, and other cooperative activities. The Momsen also took part in the Oceania Maritime Security Initiative, which supported U.S. Coast Guard maritime law enforcement activities in the region.

The Momsen has a crew complement of about 275. It is one of four destroyers of its class based in Everett. Two more are scheduled to be transferred to Everett, the USS Kidd later this year and the USS Ralph Johnson sometime in 2017.
