VALPARAISO, Chile (June 23, 2019) - The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Michael Murphy (DDG 112) arrives in Valparaiso, Chile on June 23 to particpate in UNITAS LX. UNITAS, Latin for ‘unity,’ is the world’s longest-running multinational maritime exercise. Conceived in 1959 and first executed in 1960, UNITAS is a demonstration of U.S. commitment to the region and the strong relationships forged between our partner nations and their militaries. In addition to the Pacific phase of UNITAS LX, there will be Atlantic and Amphibious phases hosted by Brazil in August.
