U.S. Carrier Participates in NATO Military Exercise

Multiple nations will participate in “Neptune Strike ’22” in the Mediterranean Sea.

On Monday, the USS Harry S. Truman carrier strike group will launch a 12-day maritime exercise “Neptune Strike ’22” in the Mediterranean Sea along with NATO allies. The exercise, which has been planned since 2020, will be led by Strikeforce NATO commander and commander of the Navy’s Sixth Fleet U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Eugene Black.

“[Neptune Strike ’22] is designed to demonstrate NATO’s ability to integrate the high-end maritime strike capabilities of an aircraft carrier strike group to support the deterrence and defense of the alliance,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby stated. “The USS Harry S. Truman carrier strike group will be placed under NATO operational control and serve as the centerpiece for this long-planned activity that fosters NATO allies’ ability to cooperate and integrate effectively.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Admiral Black as he heads the military exercises in the Mediterranean.
  • For Pentagon officials as they assess the various conflicts and tensions around the globe.
  • For the president as commander in chief and for his advisors.
