WATERS NEAR GUAM (May 29, 2015) Vice Adm. Mike Shoemaker, commander of Naval Air Forces, center, speaks to Sailors aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) during an all-hands call in the ship's hangar bay. George Washington and its embarked air wing, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5, are on patrol in the 7th Fleet area of responsibility supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. George Washington will conduct a hull-swap with the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) later this year after serving seven years as the U.S. Navy's only forward-deployed aircraft carrier in Yokosuka, Japan.
