A Sailor assigned to the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Paul Ignatius (DDG 117) greets his family on the pier at Naval Station (NAVSTA) Rota as the ship returns from deployment, Nov. 28, 2023. As the "Gateway to the Mediterranean,” NAVSTA Rota provides U.S, NATO and allied forces a strategic hub for operations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. NAVSTA Rota is a force multiplier, capable of promptly deploying and supporting combat-ready forces through land, air and sea, enabling warfighters and their families, sustaining the fleet and fostering the U.S. and Spanish partnership.
