USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71


USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) is a key element of our country's forward-deployed defense strategy. Tasked with maintaining open sea lanes of trade and communications, TR is capable of projecting air superiority to all points of the globe. The embarked Carrier Air Wing Eight aircraft serve as outstanding instruments of peace. Anytime and anywhere TR reports for duty, she brings 4.5 acres of sovreign U.S. territory and 97,000 tons of diplomacy. TR's equipment and crew are always maintained at the highest state of readiness. This enables the ship to carry out a wide variety of missions, including: air warfare, strike warfare, surface warfare, undersea warfare and electronic warfare. TR also shares the task of replenishing ships at sea and performing a variety of non-combat missions, such as the rescue at sea of people in distress and the transport of refugees and others in need of help. People make TR more than a mere mass of steel, cables and pipes. She is a floating city of 5,500 professional men and women from every state in the Union. It is the veteran Sailor with gold on his dress blues and the young 17-year old, away from home for the first time, who provide TR with heart and soul. Leadership, training and professionalism blend each of these individual personalities toward one goal ... being ready to exercise the power of TR in support of the "Forward Presence" mission of the U.S. Navy.

USS Theodore Roosevelt tested its close-in weapons system (CIWS) yesterday during an ongoing composite training unit exercise (COMPTUEX) as the aircraft carrier and its strike group prepares for an upcoming deployment.

We were planning on going out our selves but it sounds like our son will get leave to come home. We have not heard any different but with the situation in Korea who knows. If we get the chance the tiger cruise is awesome the navy was very accommodating in 2015.

Walker, hi. This is our sons first time out. He's a Search and Rescue Swimmer so he's spent the past few years training. We're also hoping for a Tiger Cruise, sounds like a great time. We're also hoping we get to see him in September, but it sounds like it's up in the air right now.

Yes my son has been on the Roosevelt since2015. I hope to get another tiger cruise. The last one was a dream come true.
