    almost forgot
    "Stennis’ arrival in Norfolk is part of a three-carrier swap that was announced last year. Stennis left for deployment from Bremerton, Wash. After Stennis’ departure, USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) arrived in Bremerton for a scheduled planned incremental maintenance availability at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. With Vinson’s spot in San Diego open, the Navy sent USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) to the Pacific Fleet from Norfolk. Lincoln had previously been a Pacific Fleet ship but was on the East Coast following its own RCOH that ended two years ago."

    Theodore Roosevelt Strike Group in Alaska for joint Exercise Northern Edge 2019

    An aircraft carrier is in Alaska for Exercise Northern Edge for the first time in a decade, as the service continues to prioritize re-learning how to operate in the Arctic.

    Northern Edge 2019 is a high-end joint exercise hosted by U.S. Indo-Pacific Command and focused on air warfare that runs May 13 through 24. About 10,000 personnel are participating, about half of which come from the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group currently operating in the Gulf of Alaska. Strike group assets include Carrier Strike Group 9 leadership, USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), Carrier Air Wing 11, USS Russell (DDG-59), USS Kidd (DDG-100), USS John Finn (DDG-113) and USNS Henry J. Kaiser (T-AO-187).

    Rear Adm. Dan Dwyer, who commands the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group, told USNI News in a phone call from aboard the carrier that “this is one of the premier exercises for the INDO-PACIFIC commanders. … Northern Edge is designed to sharpen all of our skills, tactical combat operating skills; improve our ability to command and control forces, establish those command relationships; develop our communication networks; with an overall goal of increasing interoperability within the joint force, particularly in the INDO-PACOM region.”

    He said the exercise covers command and control over both land and maritime domains, and so “all participants, whether it’s the air wing or the destroyers, are integral to that mission set and each all plug into the higher command and control piece” to share information and work together under a single joint force commander.
