U.S. Carrier George Washington Goes on Patrol in South China Sea

The USS George Washington, the U.S. Navy’s Yokosuka, Japan-based aircraft carrier, is on patrol in the South China Sea, a U.S. Seventh Fleet spokesman said.

“This is part of a typical patrol that she conducts throughout the area of operations,” Seventh Fleet spokesman Anthony Falvo said in a phone interview today. “We regularly patrol the Asia Pacific, have done so for many years and will continue to do so.”
