Today’s photos are brought to you from the Eastern Mediterranean Sea where ships from the U.S. Navy’s Gerald R. Ford and Dwight D. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Groups (CSG) sailed in formation.

The two carrier strike groups are operating in the area at the direction of the Secretary of Defense to bolster deterrence in the region following Hamas’ terrorist attack on Israel from Gaza on October 7, 2023.
