The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group departed Naval Station Norfolk over the holiday weekend to begin its composite training unit exercise (COMPTUEX) ahead of a deployment later this year.
The Truman CSG deployed from April to December 2018 and is going out for a second deployment during the sustainment phase of its readiness cycle, where the carrier maintains high readiness in case it is called upon to deploy again, surge in an emergency or participate in exercises or other events.
During COMPTUEX, the carrier, its escorts and the carrier air wing will prove again to the trainers in Carrier Strike Group 4 and to U.S. 2nd Fleet that they are ready to deploy overseas again.
