Just wondering in a navy battle group is an Admiral usually the highest rank? More than one? And what ship would he usually be on I assume the aircraft carrier? Also are subs part of a battle group or are they off on there own?

I believe a Admiral is the head of a battle group. He or she would be on the flagship which may not be the carrier.

All depends. I've was on a ship that had two admirals for a short time before the CO received his own BG.

My advice, if you want to learn the inner workings of our defense forces, is to donate some of your time and join one of them! smile

I always wanted to serve but for health reasons I never could. But if you did serve thank you for your service.

I'd like to serve in the Navy but not sure how to start. I have my draft card from 1971 and my draft number is #114. But they have not contacted me since I got the draft card. Maybe they think I am too old.

There are many things wrong with this story and narrative. Not buying it.

I would join the Navy but I am too much of a fat [censored] now, I had shoulder surgery and I have ADHD and have taken meds for it.

I got a 94 on the ASVAB a couple years back when I was thinking of joining the Marines. MEPS was fun.

I have been told that there could be up to 2 subs attached to a carrier group.... but there is always one in the "area" even if its not attached.

There were several pictures of Carrier groups in the national news about a week ago, if you looked close you could see the sub (on the surface) in the rear of the group.
It was a 21 ship group.... I know they don't always have that many companions, it just depends on the assignment.

So the correct answer to your question is maybe, maybe not.

I served in the Navy and Marines. Last your was on the JFK-CV67. One admiral, we were the flag ship. Never saw him. There were subs, there location was not generally known among our crew.
