Students visit US Naval vessel

Jul 15, 2010 11:50:18 AM - itnnews.lk

A group of students has been fortunate of visiting an American warship. It is anchored at the Trincomalee Harbour.

The US naval ship USS Pearl Harbour arrived at the Trincomalee Port on Tuesday on a good will mission. Children of schools in Trincomalee received this rare occasion of visiting the vessel. The US Embassy in Colombo afforded them this opportunity. The crew of the ship warmly welcomed the school children. The students viewed the most modern weapons used by the American troops. The crew comprises 800 members. Several war games have also been planned between the United States and Sri Lanka with the intent of promoting goodwill between the two countries.
