The President took time out of his state visit to Japan, to meet with Sailors on board the carrier. ‘Your last deployment off Taiwan helped to calm a rising storm,’ Clinton said. ‘Without firing a single shot you reassured nations all around the Pacific. With the quiet power of your example you gave the world another example of America’s power and America’s character, and I thank you for that,’.
