ABSTRACT
The United States Navy's performance in Operation Iraqi Freedom and subsequent actions—in strike warfare, tactical aviation, and maritime interceptions—was highly successful. The author was commanding officer of the San Jacinto during the initial phases of OIF, when all hands had an excellent opportunity to observe the United States Navy in action. They began a scheduled deployment in December 2002 as part of the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group, expecting the operations in the Mediterranean to be followed by an assignment in the Fifth Fleet. But events in Iraq soon changed the schedule and highlighted several areas—from technology to training—that require improvement.
