HONG KONG (NNS) – The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) and the guided-missile destroyer USS Chafee (DDG 90) anchored in Hong Kong Harbor Oct. 2.

Ronald Reagan is the flag ship for Rear Adm. Marc Dalton, Commander, Task Force (CTF) 70, embarked with Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5 and Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 15.

“The Sailors and airmen of Carrier Strike Group Five look forward to rich and diverse experiences in Hong Kong and learning more about the culture and people,” said Rear Adm. Marc H. Dalton, Commander, Task Force (CTF) 70. “We are grateful for the hospitality and welcoming spirit of our hosts.”
