Guam - Tumon will be bustling with activity this weekend with some 4,000 sailors on liberty from the USS George Washington.  The aircraft carrier pulled into port today.

Sailors won't just be soaking in the sun and the sand - hundreds will also be volunteering their time helping out with Special Olympics, participating in various cleanup efforts at schools and the hospital and speaking to students about life in the Navy.

This is the USS George Washington's second visit to Guam.

The USS Bonhomme Richard is also on Guam, bringing with it 2,200 U.S. Marines and sailors from the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit. The group is on Guam conducting readiness training for the next few days.
