More than 600 Sailors aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS Porter (DDG 78) and the frigate USS Carr (FFG 52), homeported in Norfolk, deployed Nov. 28 in support of the global war on terrorism, according to a Naval Newsstand report. Porter and Carr will participate in regional exercises with allies as a Surface Strike Group (SSG). The SSG will make diplomatic port calls and respond to any contingency operations, including those associated with the war on terrorism. The ships will be operating from the Black Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and off the west coast of Africa. The SSG is a flexible group that can operate independently or in conjunction with other maritime forces to provide support for joint and allied forces. Source: Naval Newsstand
