The Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group is on a scheduled deployment to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of ​​operations to enhance interoperability through alliances and partnerships while serving as a response force in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific region.

With more than 90 percent of all trade passing by sea and 95 percent of the world’s international telephone and Internet traffic passing through fiber-optic cables lying on the ocean floor, Navy officials continue to stress that the prosperity and security of the United States are directly linked to a strong and ready Navy.

The USS Carl Vinson was launched in 1980, and in addition to deployments in Operation Desert Strike, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Southern Watch, and Operation Enduring Freedom, Carl Vinson has been involved in a number notable events.

Osama bin Laden’s body was buried at sea in 2011 from the Carl Vinson Deck, and that same year on Veterans Day, it hosted the first NCAA basketball game on an aircraft carrier, between North Carolina and the State of Michigan.
