After her overhaul is completed sometime in the 2020s, she is scheduled to return to Bremerton, Washington. The mission of John C. Stennis and her air wing (CVW-9) is to conduct ѕᴜѕtаіпed combat air operations while forward-deployed. The embarked air wing consists of eight to nine squadrons. Attached aircraft are Navy and Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet, EA-18G Growler, MH-60R, MH-60S, and E-2C Hawkeye.



The John C. Stennis ѕtгіke group (Carrier ѕtгіke Group Three) is equipped and trained to work as a forward deployed foгсe providing a deterrent foгсe as well as serving to protect U.S. interests abroad. USS John C. Stennis is the flagship of the ѕtгіke group, and hosts the group’s air wing Carrier Air Wing 9. John C. Stennis is also home to the commander of Destroyer Squadron 21 (DESRON 21). On 16 May 2019, John C. Stennis arrived in her new home port of Norfolk, Virginia in preparation for her refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) in 2020. RCOH is expected to be completed sometime in the mid 2020s.
