Welcome Home – USS ZUMWALT (DDG 1000)

On November 10, 2022 the San Diego Council’s Homecoming Committee joined over 250 family and friends in welcoming home USS ZUMWWALT (DDG 1000) and its Sailors from its overseas deployment to the 5th and 7th Fleets.  ZUMWALT is the lead ship of its class and the first ship to be named after Admiral Elmo Zumwalt.  The Guided Missile Destroyer is 600ft long, with a beam of 80.7ft, and a draft of 27.6ft and has stealth capabilities, having a radar cross-section similar to a fishing boat despite her large size.  The Zumwalt class was designed with multimission capability. Unlike previous destroyer classes, designed primarily for deep-water combat, the Zumwalt class was primarily designed to support ground forces in land attacks, in addition to the usual destroyer missions of anti-air, anti-surface, and antisubmarine warfare.   Welcome Home ZUMWALT!  Well done to our Homecoming & Operations Chair; Jay Rindler
