SECDEF Austin Again Extends USS Gerald R. Ford Deployment


Recommended Posts

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin ordered the extension of the Ford Carrier Strike Group’s deployment, USNI News has learned.

Last week, Austin approved the second extension for the carrier, two defense officials confirmed to USNI News. The move from the Pentagon comes as the U.S. maintains its naval build-up following the Oct. 7 Hamas attacks in southern Israel. The Pentagon immediately ordered the carrier closer to Israel after the attacks.
