The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) will stop briefly in Pearl Harbor Sunday, Nov. 15 on the way to the ship’s new homeport of San Diego to conclude a nearly 9-month deployment.

During the visit, the crew will be able to enjoy liberty in Hawaii, and many will meet friends and family members.

Theodore Roosevelt (TR) departed Norfolk on March 11 for an around-the-world deployment scheduled to conclude in San Diego as part of a three-carrier swap. During deployment, TR and its Sailors conducted operations in the U.S. 5th, 6th and 7th Fleet areas of operations.

While in 5th Fleet, the TR Carrier Strike Group (TRCSG) conducted airstrikes in Iraq and Syria as directed in support of Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR), the U.S. coalition conducting airstrikes against ISIS. The TRCSG carried out 1,812 combat sorties totaling 10,618 combat flight hours, taking on 14.5 million gallons of jet fuel and expending 1,085 precision-guided munitions.

"We are proud to welcome the warfighters of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt to our waterfront and to historic Pearl Harbor," said Rear Adm. John Fuller, Commander, Navy Region Hawaii and Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific.

Theodore Roosevelt departed the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations and entered the U.S. 3rd Fleet area of operations Nov. 13. While in 7th Fleet, Theodore Roosevelt participated in Exercise Malabar 15 with the Indian Navy and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, made a port visit to Singapore and hosted Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter and Malaysia's Defense Minister.

"It has been an arduous eight months and the crew has done a superb job, and I am incredibly proud of their accomplishments. I look forward to finishing strong and bringing Theodore Roosevelt to her new home in San Diego," said Capt. Craig Clapperton, commanding officer of Theodore Roosevelt.

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter visited Theodore Roosevelt Nov. 5 and met with Sailors and Marines to thank them for their service. "The American approach to the security structure for Asia is an inclusive one. I believe that discussions with China, military-to-military contact with China, and making sure that nobody does anything or has any misunderstandings, is all a critical part of the job of keeping peace and stability out here," Carter said. "We're not trying to make divisions. We want China to be part of the security system of Asia; not to stand apart from it."

Theodore Roosevelt's change of homeport is part of a three-carrier swap that includes USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) forward deployed to Yokosuka, Japan, and USS George Washington (CVN 73), which is on the way to a new homeport in Norfolk.

TRCSG is made up of Theodore Roosevelt, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 1; Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 2 with the destroyers USS Farragut (DDG 99), USS Forrest Sherman (DDG 98), and USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG 81); and the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy (CG 60). Farragut, Churchill and Sherman returned to their respective homeports Nov. 7.
