A Sunset Landing



An SH-60F Sea Hawk helicopter from the Chargers of Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron 14 lifts off the flight deck of aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73). George Washington, the Navy's only permanently forward deployed aircraft carrier, is participating in Annual Exercise, a yearly bilateral exercise with the U.S. Navy and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force.

I, too, love my Salties for their service and sacrifice. I think being in the Navy now is much more exciting and rewarding than in my day. So many cool gadgets and computers and buttons to push and new ships to serve on…I would like to be involved with that.
