As Commanding Officer of USS STOUT (DDG 55), I am exceptionally proud of the Sailors that serve aboard this ship who have achieved so much and put forth their best every day. Their dedication to our Nation, our Navy, and our ship is exceptional, and is deserving to be recognized here. I have authorized this blog as a way for family and friends to connect daily with the activities of USS STOUT. It will contain news of USS STOUT, but it will not contain any personal information on our Sailors, nor will it contain any opinions other than my own. This blog meets all requirements of SECNAVINST 5720.47B for information on public websites and will not divulge sensitive information related to operational security.
