070511-N-7780S-033 ARABIAN GULF (May 11, 2007) – Vice President Dick Cheney walks through side boys on the flight deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). Cheney visited Stennis to thank troops 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 Arabian 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.
