USS Cape St. George , USS Halsey and Others to Deploy with Lincoln Carrier Strike Group
SAN DIEGO – Guided missile cruiser USS Cape St. George (CG 71) and guided missile destroyer USS Halsey (DDG 97) will depart San Diego Sept. 11 to join the Lincoln Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 9 for a scheduled routine deployment to 7th and 5th Fleet’s Area of Responsibility.

The mission of the Lincoln Strike Group while deployed will focus on maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts, which help establish conditions for regional stability.

“Security and stability lead to peace and prosperity. Lincoln Strike Group is ready to deploy world-wide as a force for peace in support of our nation’s global interests,” said Rear Adm. Mark D. Guadagnini, commander Lincoln Strike Group.

The deployment is part of an on-going rotation of forward-deployed forces to support maritime security operations and operating in international waters around the globe, working with other coalition maritime forces.

“We have been preparing for this day for more than two years,” said Cmdr. Jordy Harrison, Commanding Officer of USS Halsey, “I have the utmost confidence in this ship and her proud crew to perform any mission required of us. Our sailors are true patriots for their service to this country, and their families are heros for their support.”

Carrier Strike Group 9 consists of flagship USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2, San Diego-based guided-missile cruiser USS Cape St. George, and the embarked Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 9, which includes the Everett-based destroyers USS Momsen (DDG 92) and USS Shoup (DDG 86), as well as San Diego-based destroyers USS Halsey and USS Sterett (DDG 104).
