SAN DIEGO, CA – The USS Abraham Lincoln carrier arrived in its new homeport of San Diego on Monday following a 10-month deployment and around-the-world cruise. The 294-day deployment was the longest carrier deployment in the post-Cold War era.

During its around-the-world deployment, the Abraham Lincoln navigated over 64,000 nautical miles and completed multiple strait and choke point transits, including the Strait of Gibraltar, the Suez Canal, the Bab-el Mandeb, the Strait of Hormuz, the Strait of Malacca, and the Surigao Strait.

The group also participated in numerous interoperability and partnership-building exercises with sister services and allied navies.
