Right you are. Both the USS John S. McCain (DDG-56) and the
USS Fitzgerald (DDG-62) are Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, both stationed in Japan. Probably they used the DDG-56 pic because they didn’t have a close up of DDB-62.
Got pics of the USS Cushing when she was at Yokosuka.
Thanks. I read a little further in the second paragraph where it says “ Officials initially misidentified the ship but later clarified the USS McCain had been dispatched.”
So I guess it was the USS McCain that was dispatched, although it doesn’t really matter.
