U.S. Navy Seaman Apprentice Janie E. Chambers, daughter of Naomi Chambers of Camden and Harry Chambers of Camden, alongside approximately 5, 500 Sailors attached to USS George H. W. Bush (CVN 77), recently departed Naples, Italy.

During the visit, Sailors supported the local community and also enjoyed historic Italian sites through Morale, Welfare and Recreation sponsored tours. The tours allowed them to see famous sites such as the Colosseum, Michelangelo's David, and the leaning tower of Pisa.

Several Sailors dedicated liberty time to volunteer at the Missionary Sisters of Charity, a local men's shelter and soup kitchen that provides free meals and housing.

In addition to Naples, George H.W. Bush has visited Portsmouth, England, and Cartagena, Spain, since entering the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility. This is George H.W. Bush maiden deployment.

Chambers is a 2008 graduate of Camden High School and joined the Navy in September 2009.
