The USS Iwo Jima is shown under way Oct. 27 in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility. The Iwo Jima, the USS New York and the USS Gunston Hall were directed late November 2012 to remain on standby near the coast of Israel as a security precaution as the Gaza Strip conflict between Israel and Hamas escalated.
