USS Roosevelt (DDG-80) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in service with the United States Navy.
USS Roosevelt was the 13th ship of this class to be built at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Roosevelt arrived in Klaipėda, Lithuania, for a scheduled port visit, Jan. 26.
Roosevelt, forward-deployed to Naval Station Rota, Spain, is currently on its fourth Forward Deployed Naval Forces-Europe (FDNF-E) patrol.
While in Klaipeda, Sailors will work to refuel the ship and onload stores, while also experiencing the rich culture of Lithuania.
