MEDITERRANEAN SEA (NNS) -- Guided-missile destroyer USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109) transited the Suez Canal, March 16 completing her first deployment to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility (AOR).

The ship and crew spent approximately six months in the 5th Fleet AOR promoting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts.

"The majority of the world's commerce is conducted by sea," said Cmdr. Michael Meredith, Jason Dunham's commanding officer. "We're out here ensuring safety and freedom of navigation, which impacts every nation."
