USS Ronald Reagan underway again after Singapore visit

The U.S. Navy’s forward-deployed aircraft carrier, USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), got underway from Singapore June 21 following a four-day port visit.

Ronald Reagan arrived in Singapore June 17, and sailors had the opportunity to experience local culture and participated in a variety of command-sponsored projects and tours.

Ronald Reagan’s Command Religious Ministries Department coordinated six projects for sailors to interact with the local community, including volunteer opportunities at a soup kitchen, a food bank and interacting with early intervention, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten special needs students by helping them with homework and assisting teachers with assignments.

“Community relations projects are an incredible opportunity for us to meet the local community and represent our Strike Group and the United States as ambassadors,” said Cmdr. David Yang, command chaplain.

Reagan sailors also experienced Singapore through nine tours offered by the ship’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Department.

Ronald Reagan, the flagship of Carrier Strike Group 5, provides a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interests of its allies and partners in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
