The guided-missile destroyer was deployed for eight months to the eastern Mediterranean Sea.

The Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group is scheduled to deploy today.

The ARG was originally supposed to leave Friday, but was delayed because of rough waters.

The USS Carter-Hall will leave today from Little Creek-Fort Story.

The ARG will pick up marines at Camp Lejeune, then head to the Middle East and Mediterranean.
