MANAMA, Bahrain (NNS) (NNS) -- USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) departed Manama, Bahrain, Oct. 9.

Sailors experienced the local culture through tours sponsored by the ship's Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) division. They took part in golfing at the area's golf courses, visiting the local shopping areas, and attending sports tournaments at Naval Support Activity Bahrain. Sailors also participated in a community relations project at the Bahrain Mobility Institute, where they helped clean and perform maintenance around the facilities.

"This port visit was a chance for our Sailors to relax and enjoy the hospitality of the people of Bahrain as we enter the final phases of our deployment," said Capt. Andrew Loiselle, commanding officer of George H.W. Bush. "This visit also allowed us to help strengthen our relationship with Bahrain."

GHWB CSG deployed Feb. 15, 2014, and is operating in the 5th Fleet area of responsibility conducting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts.
