Ensign Jane Baird, an ordinance officer from Charleston, S.C. is serving in the U.S. Navy aboard the San Diego-based guided missile destroyer USS Higgins (DDG 76), which returned in October from a nine-month deployment to the Middle East and Southeast Asia. The Higgins is 505 feet long and 59 feet wide and weighs nearly 8,700 tons. Fast, maneuverable and technically advanced, destroyers provide the required warfighting capabilities and operational flexibility to execute multi-mission evolutions such as surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare and anti-air warfare.
