USS Harry S. Truman Trains for Deployment

The security force aboard the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman completed Force Protection Exercise (FPEX), July 29, certifications for the anti-terrorism force protection mission area in preparation for an upcoming deployment.

FPEX serves to ensure Truman’s security force is properly trained to eliminate security threats while overseas and in foreign ports. Lt. Cmdr. M. J. Finneran, Truman’s security officer, said the completion of the drills proves Truman will be properly protected wherever it may go. Finneran also said the crew pulled together and demonstrated their ability to defend the ship against threats in foreign ports.

The high recognition given to Truman’s Sailors during FPEX proves they have the level of expertise required to protect the ship against terrorist attacks.

With the certification completed, Truman moves one step nearer toward deployment readiness.
