Ronald Reagan CSG Pays Visit to Busan

US Navy’s Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group (CSG) arrived in Busan, South Korea, for a goodwill port visit, Oct. 30.

The units included the Navy’s only forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), its embarked air wing, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5, the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG 62), and the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) and USS Mustin (DDG 89).

The US routinely conducts CSG operations in the waters around the ROK to exercise maritime maneuvers, strengthen the US-ROK alliance, and improve regional security. These bilateral exercises consist of a routine training, subject matter expert exchanges, anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare drills, communication drills, air defense exercises, counter-mine planning, and distinguished visitor embarkations.

Ronald Reagan and CVW-5 provide a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interests of the US and its allies and partners in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
