Truman to Conduct JTFEX starting this week

The USS Harry S. Truman CSG will be conducting JTFEX operations off the Florida coast in the FACSFAC Jax opareas starting mid-week.

JTFEX is the culmination of pre-deployment training that began for the carrier as independent operations and carrier qualifications, progressed through the integration of the carrier's air wing (Carrier Air Wing 3), and finally operations as the centerpiece of a carrier battle group. Successful completion of JTFEX will result in certification that the carrier battle group is ready to commence their deployment.

I am sure that our Florida MMP team of monitors will have a few tidbits to throw our way later this week.
