The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Momsen (DDG 92) will depart Naval Station Everett for deployment to the Western Pacific April 22.

While deployed, Momsen is scheduled to participate in Cooperation and Readiness Afloat Training (CARAT), a series of bilateral exercises conducted with the naval and armed forces of participating southeastern Asian countries to enhance engagement and cooperation.

Momsen’s namesake is Vice Adm. Charles B. “Swede” Momsen, who from 1929-32 was actively engaged in the development of a submarine escape breathing apparatus that came to be known as the Momsen Lung.

U.S. Third Fleet leads naval forces in the Eastern Pacific from the West coast of North America to the international date line.
