We finally get to cross something off our bucket list (next up: win the Presidency and date Anne Curtis): FHM gets to board an actual US Navy ship! The US Navy's forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) dropped anchor on Manila Bay last week with a mission to conduct a five-day goodwill visit to showcase the strong historic, community, and military connections between the United States and the Philippines.
"We have a long standing history of partnership with the Philippines dating back to the Spanish-American War, and we are always appreciative of the opportunity to be able to work with one of our regional partners," says Capt. G.J. Fenton, George Washington's commanding officer. "My sailors also appreciate the opportunity to engage in new surroundings. For them to be able to visit a nation with such diversity will be a crowning moment in a lot of their lives." Well said, Kap!
So without further ado, hit the gallery below and check out the epicness that is the USS George Washington!
