Ike, Truman Conduct Dual Carrier and Joint Air Wing Operations in the Arabian Sea

USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) and USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) began dual carrier strike group and joint air wing operations with a B-52 Bomber from U.S. Air Forces Central Command in the Arabian Sea March 18, 2020. The seamless integration of naval and air commands builds a common tactical picture linking dozens of ships and aircraft to ensure the freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce, as well as provide the combatant commander significant striking power for contingency operations.

Hope all is well aboard the ship. We send up prayers everyday for you all. Love to my grandson.
Hey Shippies, does anyone have an idea how I can buy a new or used deployment book from the Ike's 2013 deployment?
The Lord bless and keep you IKE crew ❣️
We are aware of the post/rumor of Sailors aboard USS Dwight D. Eisenhower testing positive for COVID-19. This is not true. We are safe out here at sea and do not have any cases of COVID-19 aboard.
Why don't yall post about the little talent show that's going on on the IKE??? My husband has been singing I wish I can c him 😭
Missing my daughter Angel Marie Sherwood .Praying for the safety and well being of all the sailors. 🙏🙏🙏
Plankowner, checking in.
Anyone know what actions the IKE (and other vessels) are taking to contain the spread of Coronavirus?
Happy Birthday to my dear son and anyone on the Eisenhower. Can’t believe he is 19 today I’m so proud of him❤️😍
Have a safe and speedy deployment; praying for all to return safe👍
Quick question. I decided to try sending some things to my sailor directly from Amazon. My question is, is the tracking accurate? If it says it will be delivered on a certain day, is that really the day that my son will get his package or is that the day it is delivered to the location that will get all the mail to the ship?
PRAYERS FOR ALL ABOARD THIS MAGNIFICENT VESSEL. HAVE A GREAT WEEK LEARNING AND MANEUVERING. (wouldn't Magellan be jealous?😁😁
