George Washington CSG Docks in Apra Harbor, Guam

The George Washington Carrier Strike Group (GWCSG) arrived in Apra Harbor, Guam, for a goodwill port visit Oct. 28.

Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73), Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam (CG 54) and Arleigh-burke class guided-missile destroyer USS Halsey (DDG 97) are all part of GWCSG.

This is GWCSG’s second visit to Guam during its 2014 patrol.

Capt. Greg Fenton, George Washington’s commanding officer, said:

During our visit, Sailors have several opportunities to have great experiences with COMREL [community relations] projects and MWR [Morale, Welfare and Recreation] events.

According to Lt. Cmdr. Michael Tagaloa, one of George Washington’s chaplains, COMREL projects are an important part of building and strengthening relationships with its allies and partners.

Each of our three projects aims to highlight the talents of our Sailors.

We are able to have a valuable exchange of knowledge and culture through this interaction with the host country.

GWCSG is on patrol in the 7th Fleet area of operations supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
