RADM Samuel P. Ginder's Task Group 58.4—USS Saratoga (CV-3), USS Princeton (CVL-23), and USS Langley (CVL-27), with three cruisers and eight destroyers—supported the invasion force by operating north of the atoll from 17 to 28 February, helping the CVEs in the attack group—USS Sangamon (CVE-26), USS Suwannee (CVE‑27), and USS Chenango (CVE-28), all three under RADM Van H. Ragsdale—to maintain a daytime combat air patrol, conducting wide searches and making numerous strikes.
