ATLANTIC OCEAN (NNS) -- The Nimitz Class aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) departed Naval Station Norfolk, March 16, following a three-month availability period used to upgrade systems, conduct maintenance, and provide targeted training.

“Our team is excited to do what we do best — conduct operations at sea,” said Harry S. Truman Commanding Officer, Capt. Nick Dienna. “Routine training evolutions like this help us build on the success of our last deployment, strengthening our fundamentals and improving our technical expertise.”  

Harry S. Truman returned to its homeport in Norfolk Dec. 16 following an eight-month deployment — the first ship to exercise the Navy’s Dynamic Force Employment strategy. Following this successful deployment and a year of sustained excellence, Harry S. Truman was recognized as the East Coast’s CY2018 Aircraft Carrier Battle Effectiveness (Battle “E”) Award winner.

Harry S. Truman is currently underway conducting an independent streaming exercise. During this underway period, the crew will execute several ship-based training evolutions and drills to maintain proficiency, and will also conduct carrier qualifications for Norfolk-based C2 Greyhound aircraft.
