 The U.S. military sent aircraft carriers to deter the Iranian Captain

The Truman was originally scheduled to be deployed to the Middle East in September 2019, but due to a serious fault in the ships power system during the maintenance test, the ship had to return to the port for maintenance. It was not until mid November 2019 that the U.S. Navy announced that Truman had completed the maintenance acceptance work and integrated training unit task, and entered the final stage before deployment.

The identity of the current captain of the USS Truman is intriguing. The current captain of the Truman, kavon hakimzadeh, is an Iranian American with an Iranian father and an American mother. Although he was born in Texas, he moved to Iran as a baby. At the age of 11, he left Iran with his mother and 9-year-old sister and returned to the United States. He recalled that his time in Iran was an idyllic childhood..

In 1987, he joined the U.S. military from Mississippi. After becoming a pilot of the E-2 eagle eye early warning aircraft, Hakim ZAD joined the waw-125 tiger tail squadron and began his first sea trip. His other maritime resume includes: Deputy captain of the eighth carrier battle group, department head of vaw-123 screw Squadron, executive officer and commander of vaw-126 Seahawk Squadron, executive officer of John S. Stannis naval aircraft carrier (cvn74), commander of Whitney Hill (lcc20). He has completed eight operational deployments on seven different ships.

Hakimzadeh has accumulated more than 3100 flight hours and 815 carrier landings. He has awards including legion of merit, bronze star and national defense Merit Medal, as well as other individual and unit awards. In June 2019, he became the captain of the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN75).

Truman is the latest aircraft carrier sent by the United States to replace Lincoln in the Middle East deployment, but in fact, the deployment progress of the ship has been three months later than the original plan.

Hakimzad said that if the Truman was asked to replace Lincoln in the region, hakimzad said he and his staff were ready. There is no personal anxiety, he said

Ive deployed there many times in the past. Hakim ZAD said his surname is not common in the United States, but in some ways it helps break the ice when he is deployed in the Middle East or visiting ports with U.S. allies. Hakim ZAD still speaks a little Persian and is always happy to tell his family story to those who want to know more.

In the context of the further escalation of tensions between the United States and Iran, media reports say that the United States has recently increased its control over people of Iranian descent, and began to strictly investigate people of Iranian descent. According to US media reports, there have been a number of incidents in which Iranian American citizens have been interrogated and questioned by the US Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) at ports of entry and other places recently, which has aroused widespread concern on social media that the US government is detaining Iranian Americans. According to the preliminary statistics of the New York Times, at least 200 Iranians have been detained and re examined at the US border.
