exercise designed to improve unit readiness and

The USS George Washington Battle Group can travel more than
500 miles a day while simultaneously deploying to separate
geographic regions. With Tomahawk cruise missiles, tactical
aircraft and combat-ready Marines, the forces provide
unified commanders with an unparalleled range of flexible
