USS Fletcher (DD 992)

USS Fletcher (DD 992) pulls pierside to begin the first "Sea Swap". Fletcher's crew just completed a six-month deployment with the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) Battle Group, will be relieved by the crew of the recently decommissioned USS Kinkaid (DD 965). Kinkaid's crew arrived in Fremantle for liberty on Jan. 15, and after the change of command between the two crews, will take Fletcher back on deployment to the Indian Ocean and Arabian Gulf. The off-going crew of Fletcher will have several days of liberty here in Fremantle before flying back to their homeport of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. (U.S. Navy photo)
