Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Barry (DDG 52) arrived in its new homeport of Naval Station Everett, Washington March 17.

The ship was previously forward deployed, serving in Yokosuka, Japan.

USS Barry is the Navy’s oldest destroyer, commissioned in 1992. The crew is led by Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Grant Bryan.

“Barry has maintained the sharp edge on the tip of the spear for over 30 years,” said Bryan. “Commodore Barry set the bar high for our sailors to emulate, he was scrappy in a fight with unwavering dedication to country.”

The ship’s next task will be to undergo scheduled maintenance for approximately nine months. The maintenance will be to conduct ship modernization and ensure it achieves its expected service life. After maintenance is complete, the ship will remain at its new homeport in Everett.

Bryan said, “The crew is proud to keep it shipshape and seaworthy. I could not be more proud of this crew for how well they have executed our forward deployed missions and I am thankful for the families who have supported their sailors during this move.”

The ship’s arrival brings the total number of U.S. Navy ships homeported in Everett to eight including: USS Momsen (DDG 92), USS Gridley (DDG 101), USS Sampson (DDG 102), USS Kidd (DDG 100), USS John Paul Jones (DDG 53), USS John S McCain (DDG 56), and USS McCampbell (DDG 85).
