USS MCFAUL Returns from 281 Day Deployment

Pictured here is the USS MCFAUL (DDG 74) returning to NOB Norfolk on 2 December after finishing a 281 day deployment.  For those without calculators, that is in excess of nine calendar months.

According to the caption on the official Navy photo, the ship spent "270 or more" uninterrupted days at sea.

I'm glad we have all those precision guided weapons and gee-whiz networks that keep us from having to have too many ships. 

This is only going to get worse.
