USS Bainbridge Reach Seychelles For Port Visit

Posted: Updated:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The Navy says the USS Bainbridge has arrived in Seychelles for a scheduled port visit.
    
The Norfolk-based guided-missile destroyer arrived in Port Victoria on Monday. It joins the crew of the USS Carter Hall, an amphibious dock landing ship that arrived in Seychelles on Sunday. USS Carter Hall's home port is in Virginia Beach.
    
While in Seychelles, the Navy says sailors will have an opportunity to experience the local culture and assist Nature Seychelles with wetland preservation.
    
Seychelles is a 115-island country spanning an archipelago in the Indian Ocean east of mainland Africa.
    
The Bainbridge is on a scheduled seven-month deployment that began in June.
