Default The USS George Washington

is parked just down the road in Gage Roads Fremantle and some 5000 US sailors are enjoying Western Australian hospitality. Just thought you'd like to know.

USS George Washington CVN 73 can be found at:

Homepage of The Spirit of Freedom - USS George Washington (CVN 73)

Just in case someone wanted to check it out. It has been said of US sailors, "they are overpaid, over sexed and over here". The most memorable experience I had was in Scotland when taken in by a family for a couple days and shown the sights. If you get a chance you might conceder it.

Lamentations 3:22-23

I have a very good memory, just short is all.

I was a sailor many moons ago ie 1962-1966 stationed east coast. Spent all my time aboard "tin cans" and aircraft carriers are called "can openers" see the connection??!! The only nuke carrier in those days was the USS Enterprise and it is still going strong, I will likely die before it does. While you may have ex sailors you will never find an ex marine. Some folks just donít know when to quit. "USMC" Uncle Samís Misguided Children" and before any marines out there jump all over me, my best friend in life is a FORMER marine. Love you guys watching the bases for us.

I've no idea on the make up of the crew, but I do remember as a young kid during WW11, that particular saying and there are a great many half Americans in their 55 to 60's in the UK right now to prove it!

The last time I visited Perth, I was also on an aircraft carrier.

It was a very friendly city then, and most likely still is.

I am sure they would enjoy some home cooking ozzie hospitality
