120309-N-QQ884-031 YOKOSUKA, Japan (March 8, 2012) - Sailors aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) assess the hazards presented in a mock firefighting scenario conducted during a general quarters drill. General quarters is held twice a week aboard the ship to prepare Sailors to handle situations that may occur during an actual emergency. George Washington returned to her forward-operating port of Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka, November 22, after navigating more than 50,000 nautical miles across the Western Pacific to operate with more than a dozen different nations during her nine-week patrol. George Washington is the Navy's only full-time forward-deployed aircraft carrier ensuring security and stability in the Western Pacific Ocean.
