German Navy Fights Terrorism along the Horn of Africa

Vielen dank Deutschland!

Story by Cmdr. Dirk Peters,
Armed Forces of Germany

The German Navy’s commitment to supporting US Forces in the fight against terror is as sincere now as ever. From the very first pledges of solidarity in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001 – symbolized by the display of a banner reading “We Stand by You” on the German destroyer Lütjens while passing the USS Winston Churchill on Sept. 14, 2001 – German vessels have continuously been present in the waters off the Horn of Africa to support Coalition actions in Operation Enduring Freedom.

Der Rest der Geschichte.
