To set the record straight

I am currently deployed with the USS Abraham Lincoln and have been living out this so called "drama" for almost 4 months. This story is being blown completely out of proportion. Since we arrived we have operated with 2 carriers. That is standard policy. It was the same way last year when I was deployed with the Lincoln.

Now this guy is just a CDR. It is not one of the higher ranking positions in the service. I dont exactly know where he gets his figures but there have been many time over the past 10 years with two carriers in the AOR. It is just news worthy now because of the tensions with Iran. It is overblown just like whenever a carrier transits the Strait of Hormuz. In reality it is all routine but of course the MSM has to make it into something to get ratings. Always take these stories with a grain of salt.

*Disclaimer*
With all that said, these are my own personnal opinions based on my own experiences and is in no way intended to be an official statement or opinion of the USS Abraham Lincoln Strike Group, US Navy, DOD, or US Government.

I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foriegn and DOMESTIC!

The Enterprise, a prime "false flag" target

is 51 years old and due to be scrapped this Fall.

That makes 4 not 2

The Stennis and Vinson are in the Arabian sea, Lincoln is in the gulf. with the enterprise that makes 4. Interestingly enough, with refueling and overhauls, the Eisenhower is the only deployable carrier group that is not within a few days sailing of the gulf

a new war (WW3 most likely) will certainly have an effect on the coming election.
