Vernon back from deployment duty

Navy Fireman Keat K. Vernon, son of J.L. Vernon of Pecos, recently returned from a six-month deployment to the Adriatic, Mediterranean and Black seas while assigned to the guided-missile frigate USS Elrod, home ported in Norfolk, Va.

During the deployment, Vernon's ship participated in numerous exercises including Exercise Cooperative Partner. USS Elrod joined forces from Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Romania and Turkey for the annual exercise, geared towards overcoming the challenge of cooperating with different navies who possess different equipment, language and tactics.

Vernon's ship also visited cities in Crete, Croatia, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Spain and Turkey, where Vernon and his fellow shipmates had the chance to relax, sightsee, shop and enjoy the local cuisine.

Vernon's ship is a combatant ship designed to protect amphibious expeditionary forces, underway replenishment groups and merchant convoys from undersea attack. In addition to torpedoes, frigates carry helicopters that have sonar and torpedo capabilities, expanding the ship's reach. The 1996 graduate of Georgetown High School joined the Navy in November 1996.
