These are some of the places I visited during my career with the U.S. Navy, during various deployments aboard the USS Carl Vinson.  These are representative of the ports usually visited during a six month deployment aboard an aircraft carrier.  Please take a few moments to visit some of the countries I have seen.  Remember to support our troops who are still on deployment!
