Vice President Dick Cheney is greeted by the commanding officer of the USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), Capt. Brad Johanson, after he walks through side boys on the flight deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). During his visit, Cheney thanked Sailors and Marines for their support of coalition operations in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations. Cheney is aboard Stennis as part of his six-day tour to meet with key Middle Eastern leaders and speak with U.S. troops in the Persian Gulf region. Coalition forces conduct Maritime Security Operations under international maritime conventions to ensure security and safety in international waters so that all commercial shipping can operate freely while transiting the region.
