USS Ross heads to new home

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – USS Ross left Norfolk Tuesday for a deployment.

The guided-missile destroyer will make a stop in Yorktown before moving on to its final destination of Rota, Spain. It’s the second of four Arleigh-Burke-class guided-missile destroyers to head to Rota.

The Navy calls the deployment a ‘homeport shift.’
