Why the Navy will deploy the Truman Carrier Strike Group (again)
Posted on: 08/06/19

Norfolk — The aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman and her strike group will deploy soon, a move officials say has been in the works for two years.

But they’re pushing back on other media accounts that speculated Truman’s upcoming deployment — the flattop’s third overseas cruise in four years — was designed to take the place of sister Nimitz-class carrier Eisenhower, which encountered delays during a long maintenance session.

“Truman’s upcoming deployment has been planned for more than two years and has remained unchanged,” said Capt. Scott Miller, spokesman for Fleet Forces Command. “There was never a plan for Truman and Eisenhower to ‘swap’ deployment positioning.”

Fleet Forces Command officials told Navy Times that Truman’s upcoming deployment really involves stretching the limits of the Navy’s Optimized Fleet Response Plan.
