The USS Carl Vinson returned to its home port of San Diego this summer after a lengthy deployment in the Gulf region. Here is a great video with interviews of crew members – thank you for your service!
Carl Vinson returned to San Diego on 4 June 2015. Over the course of the deployment, supporting strike operations in Iraq and Syria, CVW-17 successfully flew 12,300 sorties, including 2,382 combat missions and dropped more than half a million pounds (230 tons) of ordnance against ISIS.
On 14 August 2015, Carl Vinson began a planned incremental availability (PIA) period at Naval Air Station North Island. The ship is receiving more than $300 million worth of improvements over the next six months during this modernisation.
Posted June 4, 2015, on Facebook, this Navy-produced time-lapse video shows the carrier Carl Vinson returning to North Island Naval Air Station after nearly 10-month deployment to the North Arabian Sea to launch attacks on ISIS.
