"Hajimemashite" -- USS Ronald Reagan Sailors Greet Japan

YOKOSUKA, Japan (Oct. 1, 2015) - Sailors spell out Hajimemashite, nice to meet you, on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) as the ship arrives at Commander, Fleet Activities. Ronald Reagan and its embarked air wing, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5, provide a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interests of the U.S. and its allies and partners in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
