A carrier strike group (CSG) is an operational formation of the United States Navy. It is centered on an aircraft carrier and a carrier air wing (CVW) of 65 to 70 aircrafts. It’s composed of roughly 7,500 personnel, an aircraft carrier, at least one cruiser, a destroyer squadron of at least two destroyers and/or frigates. A carrier strike group also, on occasion, includes submarines, attached logistics ships and a supply ship. Carrier strike groups comprise a principal element of U.S. power projection over the world’s oceans.

    It is no secret where they are I live in Norfolk and they say on the news which ones are home and where others go

    Michelle Kerensky I live on a ridge in East Tennessee. No aircraft carriers are based here, so we don’t get the new on where they are. While in San Diego I heard announcements on arrivals and departures on all navy ships. It is well known those announcements are for the families in the area. The announcements in San Diego don’t come this way eather. So it is a secret. In fact, once they get past the horrizon-you know-where the ocean drops off the end of the world, you will not find where any are. I think that is about 40 miles out.
