The Mahan was deployed as part of the USS Dwight D Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group. It was the second deployment in less than a year for the strike group.
Much of the time away was spent at sea because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
USS Mahan (DDG-72) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in service for the United States Navy.
