USS Vandegrift returns Wednesday

The guided-missile frigate USS Vandegrift (FFG 48) will return from its six-month, independent deployment to the Western Pacific Ocean on Nov. 28.

Vandegrift participated in five exercises in support of Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) 2012, an annual bi-lateral naval exercise series between the United States and Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand.

Vandegrift also conducted operations with the carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) while deployed.
