Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 10


The ancestor to the current Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 10 was Cruiser Destroyer Group 2 which was established in 1973. Cruiser Destroyer Group 2 was originally Destroyer Flotilla 2 established during World War I in Newport, Rhode Island. The Flotilla was deactivated in 1922 as part of the fleet draw down after the war.

Destroyer Flotilla 2 was reactivated in 1931 and served throughout the 1930s as a caretaker of reserve destroyers until again deactivated in the early days of World War II. As part of the Navy’s fleet reorganization, the Flotilla was reactivated yet again in 1946.

In 1973, Destroyer Flotilla 2 was renamed Cruiser Destroyer Group 2.  The Group relocated to Charleston, South Carolina in 1974. In 1993, Cruiser Destroyer Group 2 was again affected by fleet reorganization, becoming the Battle Group Staff for the newly named George Washington Battle Group, with the newly commissioned USS George Washington (CVN 73) as flagship.

In 2004, Cruiser Destroyer Group 2 was renamed yet again to CSG-10 in keeping with the CNO’s guidance.  |  |  Navy FOIA  |  DoD Accessibility/Section 508  |  No Fear Act  |  Open Government  |  Plain Writing Act  |  Veterans Crisis Line  |   VA Vet Center  |  FVAP  |   DoD Safe Helpline  |  Navy SAPR  |  NCIS Tips  |  Privacy Policy  |  Site Map  |  Contact US
