USS O’Kane sets sail to Western Pacific and Arabian Gulf

JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM (HawaiiNewsNow)- Loved ones lined the dock at Pearl Harbor Hickam to send off the USS O'Kane to the Western Pacific and Arabian Gulf on Friday afternoon.

"The sacrifices all these sailors are making today needs to be remembered, and these family members as well," navy wife Sharon Dhami said. "We lose out but they're protecting our country."

According to navy officials, the deployment will provide stability to the forces and reassurance to their allies. Officials did not release the exact mission or length of the deployment. 

"When everyone comes out here like they have, it is very reassuring to know that they're backing us up," Commander of Surface Navy Group Middle Pacific Rick Williams said. "To give us the kind of strength we need when we go forward."
