  Carrier Strike Group Eight


Today, more than ever, U.S. national interests require the speed, endurance, flexibility and autonomous nature of naval forces to include aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers, which deploy to conduct the full range of military operations as part of a Carrier Strike Group. Carrier Strike Groups provide access; even in parts of the world where regional infrastructures may not otherwise be able to support our forces. The Truman Carrier Strike Group is comprised of Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 1 and Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 28 and aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), which serves as the flag ship of the carrier strike group.
