Noted. You're right. After four deployments to the AOR, I forgot how we were able to go home at the end of the day and sleep in our own beds. Oh, that's right, that never happened.Granted, they have a presence in C5F. Not sure I'd call the Carribbean or EASTPAC "overseas."
For the record, I wouldn't classify the Black Sea a "hot spot" right now. A necessary patrol area? Absolutely, along with all the other places we hang out.
Given our last 13 years of focused operations, I'd disagree. The main places we've been routinely occupying are HOA, Gulf, and SouthPac. The CG has been operating in those same areas with us.You're statement "the CG is in all the same hot spots the Navy is," while loosely accurate, is misleading as it suggests CG officers will routinely deploy to the same areas we do.
