USS Underwood Returns from Six Month Deployment

More than 200 Sailors stationed on board USS Underwood (FFG 36) and embarked helicopter squadron HSL 60 will return to Naval Station Mayport on Tuesday, October 5, after a six-month deployment to the Eastern Pacific in support of Counter-Illicit Trafficking Operations.
While deployed, the ship was involved in 4 counter-narcotic disruptions resulting in the seizure of 4.3 metric tons of cocaine with a street value of $301,700,000.

In addition to the captured drugs, USS Underwood participated in several community service projects and provided humanitarian relief to Guatemala by delivering more than 11,000 pounds of supplies after tropical storm Agatha ripped through the area last May. The ship also located and rescued 3 Ecuadorian fishermen lost at sea during that storm.
