SAN DIEGO – The guided-missile frigate USS Rentz (FFG 46) is scheduled to return to San Diego Nov. 21 after a six-month independent deployment to the Caribbean Sea and Western Atlantic Ocean.
Rentz, commanded by Cmdr. Michael Davis, completed a variety of operations during deployment. While conducting counter-narcotic operations, the ship interdicted 300 kilograms of cocaine, disrupted the transport of 1,400 kilograms of cocaine, and detained several suspected smugglers.
Sailors assigned to Rentz conducted multi-lateral operations with the navies of Mexico, Colombia and Panama.
Rentz is assigned to Destroyer Squadron One, led by Commodore John Steinberger, and is the 40th Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided-missile frigate.
Rentz helps provide deterrence, promote peace and security, preserve freedom of the sea and humanitarian/disaster response within 3rd Fleet’s 50-million square mile area of responsibility in the Eastern Pacific, as well as supporting the Navy’s Maritime Strategy when forward deployed.
