Dispatches from the Front:

USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT, At Sea, April 10, 2009 -- USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) and USS The Sullivans (DDG 68) visited Portsmouth, England, April 4-8 as the ships completed their final port visits before returning to homeport.

The United States and England share a long-standing relationship. This was evident as the Sailors interacted with their hosts on tours and visits to many sites in the country. While in Portsmouth, crew members from Theodore Roosevelt and The Sullivans also participated in a variety of military interactions in addition to enjoying British culture and history.

"It was a great pleasure for our Sailors to visit England. The British were wonderful hosts in every way," said Rear Adm. Frank Pandolfe, commander, Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group.

"This visit provided an important opportunity to strengthen our unique relationship, building upon shared history, mutual respect and great trust."

Along with The Sullivans, Theodore Roosevelt and Carrier Air Wing 8 hosted scores of area residents and officials to tour the U.S. ships and embarked aircraft.

"This memorable port visit caps off a highly successful deployment," said Theodore Roosevelt's Commanding Officer, Capt. Ladd Wheeler. "The crew enjoyed the opportunity to see England and to welcome visitors to the ship. The visit was a great success."

Local Portsmouth residents returned the favor by offering tours of historic ships and locales, including HMS Victory, the flagship of English Adm. Lord Nelson.

"I studied that ship for years," said Lt. j.g. Will King, of TR's operations department. "The ship's curator, Peter Goodwin, gave a number of officers a behind-the-scenes tour. From my end, he changed my entire perspective on history and research. It was a truly momentous meeting for me."

Additionally, TR Sailors enjoyed tours in London to see famous locations including Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. The crew also ventured into the countryside to see Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and visit popular towns like Bath and Hampton Court.

"The thing that impressed me the most about England was the people," said Aircrew Survival Equipmentman Airman Apprentice Theo Frashure. "Everyone was very polite and friendly. The entire trip was made spectacular thanks to the kind people that I met. I have always wanted to go to England, and I am happy that I got the chance to experience such a wonderful place."

Theodore Roosevelt and The Sullivans are operating in the 6th Fleet Area of Responsibility. Theodore Roosevelt recently departed 5th Fleet, where it conducted combat missions in support of coalition ground forces operating in Operation Enduring Freedom. The Sullivans participated in maritime security operations and conducted theater security cooperation in 5th, 6th and 7th Fleet Areas of Responsibility.
