Stennis Strike Group deploys

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Christopher Frost

Families waved good-bye from the pier as sailors from the John C. Stennis Strike Group (JCSSG) departed San Diego Jan. 19 and 20 for a regularly scheduled deployment.

Vice Adm. Mike Shoemaker, commander Naval Air Forces, addressed the crew of JCSSG flagship USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) before the ship departed.

“Pacific Fleet and Pacific Command are counting on you to provide a deterring presence to dissuade our potential adversaries and reassure our friends in that very important part of the world,” Shoemaker said over the ship’s public address system.
