Crew members from the USS Ronald Reagan visited ET and had an opportunity to tour our facilities and meet Brooke Anderson on the ET set in Studio City, CA this week. Watch the highlights and get to know what these gallant sailors are doing for our great nation!
The USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) is a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered supercarrier in the service of the United States Navy. The ninth ship of her class, she is named in honor of former President Ronald Reagan; upon her christening in 2001, the USS Ronald Reagan was the first ship to be named for a former president still living at the time. As of May 2012 the ship is operationally part of Carrier Strike Group Nine and administratively under the command of Commander, Naval Air Forces Pacific/Commander, Naval Air Forces (the two administrative titles actually refer to one command carrying out two functions).
The USS Ronald Reagan has been visited by a variety of celebrities, including Rihanna and the stars of Battleship, Aaron Taylor-Johnson for the upcoming Godzilla remake, Tom Selleck, Bradley Cooper, LL Cool J and more. And it's not all work on the supercarrier: The USS Ronald Reagan crew are also the reigning dodgeball champs, undefeated. Hooyah!
