Summary

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (Apr. 11, 2019) Aviation Boatswain's Mate (Fuels) 2nd Class Reginald Jones, left, from Orangeburg, South Carolina, a member of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington's (CVN 73) Second Class Petty Officer Association (SCPOA), and Aviation Boatswain's Mate (Fuels) 2nd Class Xavier Amos, from Memphis, Tennessee, president of the SCPOA, talk to a group of students from Richneck Elementary School during the school's career day. George Washington's SCPOA was one of six career vendors participating in the Richneck Elementary School career day to help educate the students on possible career opportunities in the Navy, while continuing the effort to build relations in the local community. George Washington is undergoing refueling complex overhaul (RCOH) at Newport News Shipyard. RCOH is a nearly four-year project performed only once during a carrier's 50-year service life that includes refueling of the ship's two nuclear reactors, as well as significant repair, upgrades and modernization.

In the United States Navy, these consist of ships commissioned with hull classification symbols CV (aircraft carrier), CVA (attack aircraft carrier), CVB (large aircraft carrier), CVL (light aircraft carrier), CVN (aircraft carrier (nuclear propulsion) and CVAN (attack aircraft carrier (nuclear propulsion). The first aircraft carrier commissioned into the United States Navy was USS Langley (CV-1) on 20 March 1922.
