LA ROCHELLE, France – The guided-missile destroyer USS Farragut (DDG 99) arrived in La Rochelle, France, for a port visit, Sept. 7.

During the visit, Farragut Sailors will have a busy schedule including participating in sporting events against local teams, conducting a community service project, and experiencing the local culture.

Farragut’s visit to La Rochelle comes after its visit to Wilhelmshaven, Germany, during which Farragut Sailors competed in sporting events with German sailors, toured historical monuments and enjoyed the local culture.

 “I was incredibly happy with our visit to Wilhelmshaven,” said Cmdr. Glen B. Quast, commanding officer of Farragut. “Germany and the U.S. share a joint set of goals and priorities, and I am confident that we will achieve these together as we continue combined operations around the world.”

Farragut also hosted tours of the ship for local military representatives and civilians, giving Wilhelmshaven residents the opportunity to explore the ship as Farragut Sailors explained shipboard life and the U.S. Navy in general.

Farragut is on a scheduled deployment in support of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility.
