>>Note: USS George H.W. Bush conducted numerous airstrikes against the savage Islamic terrorist group, ISIS (currently ravaging large parts of Iraq and Syria), beginning in August and September of this year….among many other training, humanitarian and combat missions in support of freedom and democracy throughout her long deployment.
Harry S. Truman will make her way back to her homeport of Norfolk, Virginia in April. George H.W. Bush will remain deployed to the Middle East theater of operations for much of the remainder of this year.
And a United States Presidential namesake….in the form of a state-of-the-art supercarrier….crewed by nearly 6,000 American men and women….remains on duty, without interruption, maintaining a powerful American presence….in a most volatile part of the world….

America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.
