By Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Nathan R. McDonald  
BUSAN, Republic of Korea - Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 11, comprised of the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) along with embarked Carrier Air Wing 11, guided-missile destroyer USS Preble (DDG 88) and guided-missile cruisers USS Princeton (CG 59) and USS Chosin (CG 65) arrived in Busan, Republic of Korea, May 11.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the bond between the two nations, a bond Rear Adm. Michael White, commander, Carrier Strike Group 11, said has only strengthened with time.

"It is always a pleasure when we have the opportunity to meet with our allies in the Republic of Korea," said White. "I'm looking forward to deepening the close friendship enjoyed by the Republic of Korea and the United States."

Nimitz Sailors will have an opportunity to visit with the local community and businesses and take in a variety of sight-seeing activities while in Busan.

"It's great to be able to meet our friends from the Republic of Korea," Capt. Jeff Ruth, USS Nimitz commanding officer, said, adding, "This port visit will provide our Sailors and Marines the opportunity to experience this beautiful city."

CSG 11 is currently deployed in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility conducting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts
