RED SEA - The commander of Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 11 visited guided-missile destroyer USS William P. Lawrence (DDG 110), Sept. 4.

Rear Adm. Michael S. White met with officers and chiefs, and toured some of the ship's spaces.

While touring the ship, White also met with Sailors in their workspaces and presented Sailors with coins for their hard work.

"It meant a lot to be recognized by the admiral, especially when we have an important task at hand," said Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class (SW) Alyssa Dial. "It was a good experience to have a one on one conversation with him."

Before departing the ship, White addressed all-hands over the ship's announcing system, thanking Sailors for their hard work during deployment.

"I know it's difficult, but I ask that you work through it and we'll do it as a team," said White. "We'll watch what goes on back in the United States, we'll be given our orders and when the mission is complete we'll head back home. It is a delight to be aboard William P. Lawrence, your reputation is tremendous. I couldn't be more proud to have you in the Nimitz Strike Group and I look forward to seeing you on the horizon as we make our transit back."

William P. Lawrence departed her homeport San Diego Jan. 14 for her maiden deployment and is currently in the U.S. 5th Fleet Area of Responsibility conducting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts.
