Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, commander, North American Aerospace Defense Command and United States Northern Command, visited a U.S. Navy carrier strike group in the Atlantic Ocean May 29, 2020, to witness first-hand a major homeland defense exercise under his command.

U.S. Northern Command is leading the large-scale homeland defense exercise, May 28-31, 2020, which is a first of its kind where four combatant commands and NORAD are conducting homeland defense operations, exercising joint integration, conducting multi-national operations, and strengthening interoperability in command and control.

The exercise is in partnership with North American Aerospace Defense Command, U.S. Transportation Command, U.S. Strategic Command, U.S. Space Command, and the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group (HSTCSG), which was under the operational command of USNORTHCOM.
