NORFOLK, VA. — The Bainbridge is deploying to the waters off the coasts of Europe and Africa.

The guided-missile destroyer leaves Naval Station Norfolk for its seven-month deployment on Friday.

The ship’s mission will include deterring piracy and ensuring the oceans remain open and safe for commercial shipping traffic.

The ship’s last deployment was in 2011, when it conducted counter-piracy operations in the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean.
