USS Harry S. Truman Gets Underway

U.S. Navy’s aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) started its scheduled deployment after departing the Norfolk Naval Station, Nov. 16.

The current deployment is part of an on-going rotation of forward-deployed forces to support maritime security operations in the U.S. 6th and 5th Fleet areas of operation.

Truman, serving as the flagship of the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group (HSTCSG), completed a composite training unit exercise in September prior to deployment.

Truman can travel in excess of 30 knots, and has a crew of approximately 3,000. With the embarked air wing and staffs, the number rises to about 5,000.

HSTCSG consists of Harry S. Truman, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 7, USS Anzio (CG 68), Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 28, USS Bulkeley (DDG 84), USS Gonzalez (DDG 66), USS Ramage (DDG 61) and USS Gravely (DDG 107).
