Rostock had a new visitor in early March 2019 – the guided-missile destroyer USS Gravely (DDG 107) – the U.S. flagship of NATO Maritime Group One. The group includes Germany’s FGS Spessart (A 1442) replenishment tanker and Poland’s ORP General K. Pulaski (FrR 272), a guided-missile frigate. Working together they ensure NATO’s Very High Readiness Task Force is mission ready 24/7 in the Baltic. Collective security – stronger together.
