The USS Carl Vinson is not the only allied naval assets within range of the Korean Peninsula according to the Maritime Executive. The news source mentions the presence of destroyer Wayne E. Mercer, who is currently undergoing joint exercises with the Japan Self-Defense Air Force in the Yellow Sea of Japan, and the Ohio-class guided missile submarine USS Michigan (SSGN 727) which is currently docked at Busan.
