SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- At the request of U.S. Coast Guard District 11 in San Diego, 3rd Fleet has diverted USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) Nov. 9 from its current training maneuvers to a position south near the Carnival cruise ship C/V Splendor to facilitate the delivery of needed supplies.

Early Nov. 8, C/V Splendor reported it was dead in the water 150 nautical miles southwest of San Diego and requested assistance from the Coast Guard.

An expected total of 35 pallets of supplies will be transferred Nov. 9 from Naval Air Station North Island aboard Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 30 carrier on-board delivery aircraft beginning at 0700 PST to Ronald Reagan. Once aboard Ronald Reagan, the supplies will be delivered with a helicopter to C/V Splendor.

No - such "services" are part of being on the high seas - where all mariners are obliged to assist other mariners in distress. Plus, it is considered both a humanitarian effort and a rescue effort. The Navy trains constantly for handling emergencies at sea such as this. Its one of the reasons there is so much pride and outstanding effort from those who serve when an actual situation arises. BZ CVN 76.

Uh, I think they pay TAXES. Why would our services not aid their own citizens when they provide aid to people all over the world? We don't ask others in need for money, do we?

In the name of the Colombian people, thank you all aboard USS Ronald Reagan. God bless all about you.

Do civilians/ civilian companies pay for the service, such as this assistance to a cruise liner, that they receive? If not, they should. Thank you, Jeff

Probably this has a connection to the mystery missile contrail. Hope no one got hurt from the launch, etc.
