NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (Oct. 30, 2017) Chief Boatswain's Mate Edmundo Brantes gives training to deck department Sailors before removing the anchor from the ship in the forecastle aboard the Nimitz-Class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73). George Washington is undergoing a refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) at Newport News Shipyard. RCOH is a nearly four-year project performed only once during a carrier's 50-year service life that includes refueling of the ship's two nuclear reactors, as well as significant repair, upgrades and modernization.
