JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii (AP) - A guided-missile destroyer will be returning to Pearl Harbor after a deployment to the Western Pacific and the Arabian Gulf.

USS Russell is expected to return Monday.

The Navy says the crew of nearly 300 sailors conducted a range of operations, including ballistic missile defense, maritime security operations and oil platform defense. The destroyer also participated in multi-national exercises with NATO allies and Gulf partner nations.
