USS Stockdale Gets Ready for Deployment

The Sailors aboard USS Stockdale (DDG 106) are undergoing Combined Training Unit Exercise and Joint Task Force Exercise (COMPTUEX/JTFEX), the final step in certifying the John C. Stennis Strike Group to deploy.

The ship has run through a variety of scenarios designed to test every aspect of the crew’s ability to respond throughout the approximately five-week exercise.

Stockdale Sailors have trained continuously during the past year, but COMPTUEX/JTFEX has increased the pace in CIC. Now that they’re operating with other ships in the strike group, there are a lot more moving pieces for the CIC team to track and monitor.

The lessons learned during COMPTUEX/JTFEX has paid dividends for many of the Sailors, especially those who haven’t deployed with the strike group before.
