USS Benfold (ddg65)
Tomahawk Land Attack Missile Exercises
SAN DIEGO – USS BENFOLD (DDG 65) successfully launched two Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAM) on January 25th during a training exercise off the southern coast of California.

BENFOLD’s Commanding Officer, CDR David Oden, said, "This launch once again proves BENFOLD can do what our Nation asks of us and go in harm’s way to defend freedom around the world. BENFOLD Sailors make that possible each and every day.”

“CM Division gave BENFOLD their best and put on a great display,” said FCCS(SW) Jacob Shafer as he expressed how proud he was of the immense amount of effort his Sailors in BENFOLD’s Combat Missile Division put into this exercise.

BENFOLD Executive Officer, CDR Richard LeBron, said "It’s hard to overstate how important it is to be able to do our nation’s bidding at a moment’s notice. Today, BENFOLD proved that it was up for the challenge."

BENFOLD is an Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer homeported in San Diego, CA. She also serves as one of the Navy’s premier Ballistic Missile Defense ships in the Pacific.
