USS "Gravely" missile destroyer sails into Split

The USS "Gravely" guided missile destroyer from the 6th Fleet on Thursday sailed into the military port Lora in Split, where it will stay until the 27th as part of the cooperation between the United States and Croatian navies.

The US and Croatia are working together on a stable, safe and prosperous Europe, and the presence of the USS "Gravelly" in the region is a demonstration of our continued commitments to NATO's collective security, the US Embassy said.

The USS "Gravely" is the second destroyer visiting the Croatian Navy over the past two days. The British HMS "Defender" destroyer sailed into Split yesterday and will stay until June 25.
