October 28, 2019


Always a good day when a deployed ship arrives back to its home port. There were many happy reunions this morning at Naval Station Everett as the Momsen returned. Here’s more.

The Momsen back at Naval Station Everett today.

Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Momsen (DDG 92) returned to its homeport of Everett following an independent deployment with a detachment from Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 35 “The Magicians” to the U.S. 3rd and 7th Fleet areas of operations, Oct.28.

“The consummate professionals of Momsen repeatedly demonstrated our toughness and ingenuity as we were able to ‘Rise Above’ the numerous challenges we faced on this deployment,” said Cmdr. Robert M. Laird, Momsen’s commanding officer. “Despite long underway periods and few port visits, we kept Momsen on mission demonstrating the United States’ commitment to international norms, standards, rules and laws of the sea. We are looking forward to some well-earned rest and recuperation with friends and family.”

Momsen participated in several operations during its deployment including Pacific Griffin, a biennial maritime exercise involving the U.S. and Republic of Singapore navies, designed to enhance combined warfighting skills and tactical execution. They also were one of multiple U.S. and allied ships enforcing the United Nations Security Council Resolution against illicit ship-to-ship transfers that violate DPRK sanctions.

The ship covered approximately 47,000 nautical miles over the course of its deployment.
