U.S. Naval Forces Central Command Area of Responsibility, 08 January 2007 — The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Anzio (CG 68) steams behind the Nimitz–class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) as an SH-60F Seahawk from the “Nightdippers” of Helicopter Anti–submarine Squadron Five (HS-5) prepares to land on Eisenhower's flight deck. Anzio, Eisenhower and embarked Carrier Air Wing Seven (CVW-7) are on a regularly scheduled deployment in support of Maritime Security Operations (MSO). MSO help set the conditions for security and stability in the maritime environment, as well as complement the counter-terrorism and security efforts of regional nations. These operations deny international terrorists use of the maritime environment as a venue for attack or to transport personnel, weapons or other material.
