Navy Decides on San Diego for U.S.S. Carl Vinson

(HONOLULU) KHNL- Honolulu or San Diego? The U.S. Navy has decided to go with San Diego as the base for aircraft carrier U.S.S. Carl Vinson. The ship which has visited Pearl Harbor many times is likely to relocate to San Diego in 2010.

Hawaii senators Daniel Inouye and Daniel Akaka say they were disappointed Pearl Harbor, with its strategic location in the Pacific ocean and proximity to Asia, was not selected. The Navy says it selected San Diego for its existing infrastructure, family support facilities, and proximity to training areas.
