When the strike group finally forms up in the Atlantic before crossing to the Mediterranean and beyond, it will consist of more than 8,000 sailors aboard eight ships: Enterprise, cruiser Gettysburg, destroyers Arleigh Burke, Stout, James E. Williams and Forrest Sherman, attack submarine Philadelphia and the combat support ship Supply.

Rear Adm. Dan Holloway, commander of Carrier Strike Group 12, told reporters on the pier before Enterprise departed that the strike group’s purpose will be to provide options for national leadership while conducting maritime security operations. The carrier John C. Stennis and the amphibious assault ship BonHomme Richard are now in the Persian Gulf, and the carrier Nimitz is in the Indian Ocean, according to the Navy.

Enterprise strike group prepares to deploy

NORFOLK, Va. — The ships of the Enterprise carrier strike group are scheduled to set sail from their East Coast homeports July 7 through July 9 for a six-month deployment to the Middle East.

Some 7,500 sailors will be part of the regularly scheduled cruise. The Enterprise departs Naval Station Norfolk on July 7 and will be joined by aircraft and sailors from Carrier Air Wing 1. Two days later, the destroyers Arleigh Burke, Stout, Forrest Sherman and James E. Williams deploy from Norfolk, and the cruiser Gettysburg will leave Naval Station Mayport, Fla., to join the group.

The attack submarine Philadelphia will leave later in July from its homeport in Groton, Conn. Also part of the strike group is the combat support ship Supply, which will leave from Earle Naval Weapons Station in New Jersey.

The Enterprise returned to Norfolk from its most recent deployment on Nov. 18, a cruise that took the carrier across the Atlantic, through the Mediterranean and the Middle East, to Korea and back.
