Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group Public Affairs
USS Abraham Lincoln, At Sea: Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group entered the 7th Fleet Area of Responsibility (AOR) Sept. 25 as part of their scheduled 2010-2011 deployment.
The 7th Fleet AOR is the largest of the numbered fleets, covering more than 48 million square miles of the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
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.
"Working with our allies in this region is extremely important to us," said Rear Adm. Mark D. Guadagnini, strike group commander. "The U.S. commitment to cooperation and collaboration with like-minded nations is vital to Asia-Pacific security and stability."
Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group consists of flagship USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2, San Diego-based guided-missile cruiser USS Cape St. George (CG 71), and the embarked Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 9. Ships assigned to DESRON 9 include the Everett-based destroyers Momsen (DDG 92) and Shoup (DDG 86), as well as USS Halsey (DDG 97) and USS Sterett (DDG 104).
