Destroyer to leave on deployment to Middle East and Western Pacific

The guided missile destroyer USS O’Kane will depart from Pearl Harbor tomorrow morning on a deployment to the Middle East and Western Pacific, the Navy said.

Cmdr. Derek Trinque, the ship’s commanding officer, said in a release that the O’Kane “will support ballistic missile defense requirements” in the Middle East, as well as conduct other missions.

The O’Kane and five other Pearl Harbor ships have ballistic missile shoot-down capability, the Navy said. The other ships with shoot-down capability are the destroyers Russell, Paul Hamilton and Hopper, and the cruisers Lake Erie and Port Royal.
