PHILIPPINE SEA (Nov. 16, 2011) - Sailors aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) bow in prayer during a burial at sea ceremony. U.S. Navy ships regularly conduct burial at sea ceremonies to give final honors to active duty service members, military veterans, civilian marine personnel of the Military Sealift Command and military dependents. George Washington pulled out of her forward-operating port of Yokosuka, Japan Sept. 19 to continue her 2011 patrol. As the Navy’s only full-time forward deployed carrier, George Washington’s mission is to help ensure security and stability in the western Pacific Ocean.
