Home Improvement, Navy Style

If you thought remodeling your 3-bedroom home was a daunting project, try a major overhaul of an 8,000-ton floating warship. For Surface Ships, preparation for deployment begins in the yards. USS Russell (DDG 59) is currently in a yearlong maintenance availability receiving repairs and upgrades in San Diego before returning to the fleet. Check out this video to get a peek of shipyard life for the Russell crew.

    Embarked on the USS RUSSELL several times when I was on the staff of DESRON 31. The RUSSELL is the setting for my book Defending Freedom.
