SAN DIEGO - Sailors from San Diego-based destroyer USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108) are scheduled to return to Naval Base San Diego, April 12, after a successful three-month deployment.

During the deployment the guided-missile destroyer's 320 Sailors conducted routine operations in the Indo-Pacific region as part of the Carl Vinson Strike Group.

Wayne E. Meyer visited Guam, Malaysia, Hawaii, and Vietnam. The visit to Vietnam was the first by a carrier strike group in more than 40 years resulting in strengthened bilateral ties.

Sailors will greet awaiting family and friends upon their return.

The strike group includes aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), Carrier Air Wing 2, guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain (CG 57), USS Michael Murphy (DDG 112), and Wayne E. Meyer from Destroyer Squadron 1.
