Destroyer Ross arrives at homeport in Spain

NORFOLK, VA. — A Norfolk-based destroyer has arrived at its new homeport in Spain.

The guided-missile destroyer Ross arrived Monday in Rota, Spain, after departing Naval Base Norfolk on June 3, according to The Virginian-Pilot.

It is the second of four destroyers to transfer to the U.S. naval base in Spain, including the Norfolk-based Donald Cook. The Cook left Virginia in February.

The ships are being deployed as part of the Obama administrationís four-phase plan to put land- and sea-based radars and interceptors in several European locations over the next decade.

The plan was developed in 2009 to protect against a potential Iranian nuclear threat and approved by NATO the following year.
