Pentagon spokesman John Kirby confirmed that the USS Carl Vinson had arrived in the Gulf region, and insisted that its “deployment in that area is routine, long-planned — there’s nothing unusual about that.”

The USS Carl Vinson is deployed in the 5th Fleet area of responsibility. That area covers the Persian Gulf, the Red Sea, the Gulf of Oman and portions of the Indian Ocean.
