Building resiliency is a necessary part of every forward-deployed Sailor’s deployment in order to stay physically and mentally ready. The Sailors of Destroyer Squadron (DESRON 15) are our most valuable asset. Halsey is underway conducting operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Pacific while assigned to DESRON 15, the Navy’s largest forward-deployed DESRON and the U.S. 7th Fleet’s principal surface force.
