PRODUCT ID : whco022714b16

This carrier gets its name from our first President, George Washington, who used the words "The Spirit of Freedom" when he was describing the mood of the people in a letter to a fellow patriot during the American Revolution.

The USS George Washington, a nuclear-powered aircraft supercarrier, was given the official seal of approval by First Lady Barbara Bush on July 4, 1992, in Norfolk, Virginia.  The homeport for the USS George Washington is Yokosuka Naval Base in Yokosuka, Japan.  The flight deck alone is 4.5 acres with room for over 80 aircraft and this carrier can accommodate a crew of 6,250.  The two nuclear reactors on board permit the ship to go almost 18 years before needing to refuel and it can go as fast as 30+ knots.

The ship has been recognized with many awards in its short life and more are sure to come.
