Vernon participates in exercise

Navy Fireman Keat K. Vernon, son of J.L. Vernon of Pecos, recently participated in Exercise Cooperative Partner '99 off the coast of Bulgaria while on a six-month deployment to the Adriatic and Mediterranean seas and the Arabian Gulf while assigned to the guided-missile frigate USS Elrod.

The exercise involving forces from Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Romania, Turkey and the United States was geared towards cooperation and understanding in addition to addressing and overcoming the challenges present in working with different navies who possess different equipment, language and tactics.

Vernon's ship is a combatant ship designed to protect amphibious expeditionary forces, underway replinishment 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.
