Truman projects America's maritime and aviation dominance throughout the world. Since being commissioned on July 25, 1998, the Harry S. Truman has participated with distinction in operations Southern Watch and Iraqi Freedom and served as the flagship of the U.S. Navy's task force in response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
