USS Donald Cook Completes FOST
PLYMOUTH, United Kingdom - The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Donald Cook (DDG 75) completed Flag Officer Sea Training (FOST) March 16.
The FOST certification aims to certify NATO ships in advanced warfare areas.
"This being our second visit to FOST the crew was well prepared and it showed. The professional staff at FOST flexed the crew through serials and drills that emphasized communication and partnership with multi-nation forces. It was, once again, a phenomenal opportunity to see how our forces integrate; and to see what we can adopt in our Navy's culture and procedures to make us better as a warfighting unit."
-USS Donald Cook Command Master Chief Mark Schlosser
