Since World War II, the U.S. Navy's carriers have been the national force of choice. In over 80% of the times when the World was faced with international violence, the United States has responded with one or more carrier task forces. Over the past 25 years, requirements for USN carrier forces to be on station to respond to a crisis have increased.
