USS Dwight D Eisenhower PASSEX with Turkish Navy

March 18, 2021 – The Dwight D. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group conducted a passing and communication exercise with the Turkish Navy in the Mediterranean Sea, March 16-17, 2021.

The passing exercise, with Turkish Ship TCG Gemlik (F-492), builds upon partnership capabilities using NATO operational and tactical procedures.

“It is a pleasure working with our Turkish Allies and continuing to build upon a 70-year foundation of shared values and experiences,” said Rear Adm. Scott Robertson, Commander, Carrier Strike Group TWO. “Conducting operations with Turkish Naval forces demonstrates America’s commitment to our like-minded allies and supports the notion that we are far stronger and more capable to uphold free and open conditions at sea when we stand together.”
