According to Burke, while in Hong Kong, sailors and marines will participate in community service projects and experience the local culture through tours. These service projects include opportunities to distribute food and visit the elderly, provide care and encouragement to youth, provide landscaping to facility grounds, and play games with children.

It was introduced that the nuclear-powered supercarrier was deployed back in March to provide support after Japan's massive earthquake. It acted as a refuelling station for the Japanese military and coast guard helicopters flying relief missions in the area.
