Santiago Port, the largest port of the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet, is home to several naval aircraft carriers. When we arrived, the tour guide said that if we were lucky enough to see the carrier, we would not only see the carrier, but also the carrier fleet. In the movies and TV, we often saw that the carrier was only a fleet. What we saw here was the fleet group. Usually an aircraft carrier would form a fleet with several auxiliary ships such as supply, medical treatment, refueling and so on. We saw five aircraft carriers. What a stir. The tour guide said that we were lucky to catch up with the supply of foreign ships. So the battle was huge. The whole coast was full. We traveled half the Strait by boat, full of warships. It was shocking.
Very beautiful western city of America! It was already evening when we drove to the airport and ate the famous Korean barbecue. The next day we went to the port, Midway Island aircraft carrier, and boarded the aircraft carrier for the first time. We had to sigh at the development of the military industry in the United States. We can imagine that their aircraft carrier was so powerful as early as World War II. Today we can imagine it. China's aircraft carrier has just started, there is still a long way to go! In the afternoon, I went to potato chips mountain on foot. It was so sunny and exhausting! But it's worth it when we get to the scenic spots!
Not only can we see the aircraft carrier Midway Island in Santiago Port, but also we can take cruise ships to sea and watch the wild migrating marine animals. If we are lucky, we can see the active aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines returning to the port at the naval base. Many of the staff members on the aircraft carrier Midway Island are retired or retired elderly people. They are obliged to participate in tour guidance and interpretation work.

More than half a century ago, American Life magazine released an album on the theme "Defeat Japan", in which a photograph of a black-haired sailor kissing a white-coated nurse was taken by journalist Ifrey Eisenstad, which became a symbol of Allied victory in the Second World War. Later, the sculpture on the San Diego Port was created with photographs. Eternally demonstrates the pride and pride of winning the Second World War, so it is called "Kiss of Victory" or "Kiss of the Century".
Three aircraft carriers were stationed at the port, as well as the decommissioned old carrier Midway Island, which had participated in the Second World War. The old carrier is now open to the outside world and can buy tickets to visit. After visiting the old city of San Diego, we drove to the military port of San Diego. The statue of the Kiss of the Century is on the shore of the carrier Midway Island.
It is a port of great commemorative significance and historical characteristics. Free attractions, you can come here to blow the sea breeze, visit the garden. There are many huge tall trees and statues, of course the most famous are the "Kiss of the Century" statues and warships. The statue of the kiss of the century is super large.
