  • The Navy accepted delivery of future guided-missile destroyer USS Ralph Johnson from its shipbuilder. The ship is the 64th Arleigh Burke class destroyer and is equipped with the Aegis Baseline 9 combat system.
  • Watch these members of U.S. Marine Forces Europe and Africa fast-rope at Naval Station Rota, Spain.
