JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The USS Tornado, a navy patrol ship, returned from deployment Wednesday morning.

A Mayport spokesman said the station would use social media to welcome the heroes home because family members aren’t allowed to greet the returning sailors pier-side like usual because of COVID-19 precautions.
