Third Fleet participating in San Diego Fleet Week 
Third Fleet Public Affairs 
SAN DIEGO – USS Princeton (CG 59) and USS Rushmore (LSD 47) from the U.S. Third Fleet area of operations will be available for tours Sept. 17 and 18 at the Broadway Pier during San Diego’s Fleet Week. USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) will be available for public tours at Naval Station North Island Sept. 24 and 25.
San Diego Fleet Week 2011 is a great opportunity for the American public to meet their Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard team and to experience the best of the sea services. This event will showcase naval personnel, equipment, technology and capabilities.
Naval Aviation is celebrating its 100th anniversary of flight. From its inception, Naval Aviation has been a “Global Force for Good,” as a symbol of power, and a force for stability in an increasingly unstable and interconnected world. Naval Aviation involves everything from engaging in combat and warfare support, to keeping waterways safe and open for global commerce, to deterring sea piracy and drug trafficking. And when called upon, it provides humanitarian assistance and disaster relief anywhere, anytime – to help American citizens and citizens of the world.
There will be several opportunities to interview the crew and leadership of the various ships during Fleet Week.
U.S. Third Fleet area of responsibility includes 50 million square miles of the Eastern and Northern Pacific ocean areas including the Bering Sea, Alaska, the Aleutian Islands and sectors of the arctic. Third Fleet measures its success by the readiness and combat efficiency of the Fleet and the extent to which it is connected and interoperable with domestic partners, international partners and allies.
