USS Harry S Truman Heading to The Middle East

USS Harry S Truman has left port making it five Aircraft carriers underway....
 Thats a lot of hardware heading in one direction.

The USS George Washington was holding maneuvers with the USS John C Stennis but at least the Stennis is on it's way to the Persian Gulf and speculation is the Washington might accompany the Stennis there.

Nobody really knows where these carriers are heading but five battlegroups is a major amount being deployed at once...maybe means something maybe not.
