USS Nicholas to deploy to Africa
On the military watch, during their deployment, a crew of about 200 sailors will help fight against piracy near the Horn of Africa.
If you remember over the summer, NewsChannel Three’s Mike Mather was in Mayport, Florida as the Nicholas hauled in a massive amount of drugs, captured from drug smugglers.
The crew of the USS Nicholas set sail Saturday out of Naval Station Norfolk.
The Guided Missile Frigate is heading to the US 5th Fleet area near the Persian Gulf.
