Navy Announces Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group Will Remain On Station

From Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group Public Affairs.
Arabian Gulf — (NNS) — April 29, 2016 — The Navy announced April 29 the Defense Department's approval of a request from U.S. Central Command to extend the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group's ongoing deployment by 30 days in support of Operation Inherent Resolve and other counter-terrorism efforts.

Truman Carrier Strike Group is deployed in support of Operation Inherent Resolve, maritime security operations, and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations.

USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) departed Norfolk in November 2015 for a regularly scheduled deployment to the U.S. 6th and 5th Fleet areas of operation. The strike group is currently supporting the coalition fight against ISIL.

"This decision is central to our ongoing effort to dismantle and roll back terrorist networks in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere," said Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson. "Accelerating the fight against ISIL is the President's number one priority and the Truman strike group plays an important role as we work to destroy ISIL and continue to go after the remnants of al Qaeda."

Truman (CVN 75), center, participates in a replenishment-at-sea with fleet replenishment oiler USNS Pecos (T-AO 197), left, and dry cargo and ammunition ship USNS Medgar Evers (T-AKE 13). Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group is deployed in support of Operation Inherent Resolve, maritime security operations, and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations.

On April 15, the strike group surpassed an operational milestone for delivering the most carrier-based ordnance during Operation Inherent Resolve, substantially degrading ISIL resources and leadership. Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 7, embarked aboard Truman, completed 1,407 combat sorties, delivering 1,118 precision-guided munitions equally over 580 tons of ordnance.

"The contributions we're making in the maritime environment are key to ensuring regional stability," said Rear Adm. Bret Batchelder, commander, Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 8. "Our sailors' commitment and professionalism has been significant, and as a strike group, we're at peak operational effectiveness; so we're going to stay in the fight a while longer. I want the sailors and their families to know how proud I am of their continued efforts and dedication to this fight."

The Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group held the previous record when it delivered 1,085 precision-guided munitions in support of counter-ISIL operations in 2015.

"Terrorist organizations remain a significant threat to U.S. interests. The superb efforts of the men and women of the Truman strike group have and will continue to be instrumental in winning this fight," said Richardson.

The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group was originally scheduled to complete the first seven-month deployment for a carrier group since the Navy announced the goal in 2014. Amphibious ships and submarines are already deploying in seven-month increments.

"Before deviating from our seven-month deployments, we consider each Combatant Commander's request to ensure the readiness of our naval forces," said Richardson. "We will do everything we can to mitigate the impact on our families and execute planned seven-month deployment lengths going forward."

The strike group consists of aircraft carrier Truman, the embarked carrier air wing, Commander, Carrier Strike Group 8, USS Anzio (CG 68), Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 28, USS Bulkeley (DDG 84), USS Gonzalez (DDG 66), and USS Gravely (DDG 107).
