USS Porter Conducts PASSEX with Romania in Black Sea
BLACK SEA – The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Porter (DDG 78) participated in a bilateral passing exercise (PASSEX) with ships from the Romanian navy in the Black Sea, June 13, 2016.
"Exercises like this one with the Romanian Navy provide us an exceptional opportunity to practice our skills in a variety of warfare areas. The interoperability we develop today, in times of peace, will provide the foundation for our continued operations during the most challenging situations. It is always a pleasure to work with our NATO allies, and any chance we have to work with the Romanian Navy, especially in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, is a welcome event."
– Cmdr. Andria Slough, commanding officer USS Porter (DDG 78)
