NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The USS Harry S. Truman is now operating in the U.S. 6th Fleet Area of Operation after repairs were made.
The carrier had been held back since August after the Navy said an electrical issue would need to be repaired before being released.
“We are ready to continue our steadfast commitment to our allies and partners in U.S. 6th Fleet. These vital sea lanes must remain open for global commerce and prosperity, and nothing in the world is able to foster regional security like a carrier strike group.”Rear Adm. Andrew J. Loiselle
The Harry S. Truman strike group last operated in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations in 2018.
