USS TR Back in the Arabian Gulf

The aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) escorted by USS Normandy (CG 60), transited the Strait of Hormuz from its station in the Arabian Sea to the Arabian Gulf April 24, to rejoin other U.S. and coalition forces supporting Operation Inherent Resolve.

Theodore Roosevelt and Normandy had operated in the Arabian Sea since April 19 conducting maritime security operations to ensure the sea lanes in the region remained open and safe.

In recent days, the U.S. Navy had increased its presence in this area as a result of the current instability in Yemen. It is not uncommon for the U.S. Navy to position its forces in those areas requiring more focused attention in order to ensure the freedom of navigation. The United States remains committed to its regional partners and to maintaining security in the maritime environment.
