(Worthy News) - The USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group was followed by a group of Iranian vessels as it left the Middle East, and was replaced by the USS Harry S. Truman strike group.
U.S. defense officials said Monday that the carrier and its escort vessels are currently in the Indian Ocean after seven months in the Middle East.
The USS Harry S. Truman, another aircraft carrier with unspecified escorts, entered the area of the U.S. 7th Fleet on Dec. 13, through the Suez Canal, as a replacement force. The Lincoln has patrolled the North Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman since May. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
