USS Mason (DDG 87) Conduct Maritime Security Operations in the Red Sea
The guided-missile destroyer USS Mason (DDG 87) sails alongside the Japanese Murasame-class destroyer Akebono (DD 108) in the Gulf of Aden on November 25, 2023. According to U.S. Central Command, on December 13, the Mason, which is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations to support maritime security and stability in the Middle East, responded to a mayday call from the Marshall Islands-flagged tanker Motor Vessel Ardmore Encounter, which was under attack from Houthi forces. While responding to the distress call, the Mason shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle also launched from Houthi-controlled areas. The UAV was heading directly towards the Mason and was shot down in self-defense. Photo by PFC3 Samantha Alaman/U.S. Navy/UPI
