ATLANTIC OCEAN (May 2,2 015) The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mitscher (DDG 57), in formation with the French tallship the Hermione in the Virginia Capes, welcomes the French vessel on the U.S. Navy's behalf. The original the Hermione brought French General Marquis de Lafayette to America in 1780 to inform General Washington of France's alliance and impending support of the American Revolutionary War. The symbolic return of the Hermione will pay homage to Lafayette and the Franco-American alliance that brought victory at the Battle of Yorktown in 1781. The Hermione will visit Yorktown, Va., June 5 and then continue up the east coast visiting cities of Franco-American historical significance. (U.S. Navy video/Released)
