VALPARAISO, Chile (June 23, 2019) - The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Michael Murphy (DDG 112) conducts a sea and anchor evolution while pulling into Valparaiso, Chile. The ship is deployed to the U.S. 4th Fleet area of operations to participate in exercise 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.
