PACIFIC OCEAN (July 28, 2015) The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Chafee (DDG 90) transits the Pacific Ocean as part of the George Washington Carrier Strike Group. George Washington and its embarked air wing, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5, are on patrol in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. George Washington will conduct a hull-swap with the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) later this year after serving seven years as the U.S. Navy's only forward-deployed aircraft carrier in Yokosuka, Japan.
