Naval patrol ship USS Tornado returns from deployment this morning
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The USS Tornado, a navy patrol ship, is returning from deployment this morning. Naval Station Mayport plans to stream the arrival on its Facebook page.
A public relations spokesperson for Mayport said the station is using social media to welcome the heroes home because family members aren’t allowed to greet the returning soldiers pier-side like usual because of COVID-19 precautions.
