Bzzt. Thanks for playing.
The USS Roosevelt, DDG-80 is an Arleigh-Burke class destroyer homeported in Mayport Florida and a member of Destroyer Squadron 24. It is an Atlantic
Fleet destroyer and very unlikely to be stationed in Japan. The Japanese are very sensitive to the names of our ships stationed there. We can't put
the carriers Nimitz or Truman in Japan, for example, because of their WW II connotations. The last entry I can find for the Roosevelt is its
participation in Operation Joint Warrior off the coast of Scotland in November, 2010.
I don't have this nailed 100% CORRECTION: It is nailed. See below. because it's remotely possible this ship left its own squadron and traveled half
way around the world to join a different squadron and fleet, but I doubt it. I'll look a little further.
EDIT TO ADD: The USS Roosevelt is hosting a Pancake breakfast this Saturday at Mayport, Florida.
