The article reports that St. Maarten Navy Leaguers had welcomed the first U.S. aircraft carrier to visit the island in West Indies more than five years over the Easter holiday weekend when the USS George Washington arrived for a liberty call and the largest community relations service project ever undertaken by the U.S. Navy. More than 270 sailors from George Washington had worked more than 1,200 total man hours of work over the weekend. They still found a time to play games with children.
