USS Gravely’s Heroic Defense

The USS Gravely‘s decisive action successfully halted two ballistic missiles aimed at the Maersk Hangzhou, a Danish-owned container ship, highlighting the danger posed by Houthi attacks on commercial vessels in the Red Sea and the military’s swift response in averting potential casualties.

Despite the alarming frequency of Houthi attacks—marking 23 assaults since November—the USS Gravely’s defense not only protected the Maersk Hangzhou but also safeguarded itself and the USS Laboon, underscoring the U.S. military’s pivotal role amidst escalating hostilities.

This courageous intervention showcases the crucial role played by the U.S. military in preserving the security of crucial trade routes, particularly in the face of escalating tensions and repeated threats to maritime commerce in the Red Sea.

Reports of a chemical tanker near India being targeted by an Iranian-launched drone and companies like BP suspending Red Sea gas and oil shipments due to mounting security concerns underscore the significant impact of these attacks on global trade routes and shipping operations.
