With the USS George Washington (CV-72) preparing for arrival in Japan, the San Diego ship repair companies that made its voyage possible received a heart-felt thank you Wednesday from Navy leaders.

As guest speaker at this month’s Port of San Diego Ship Repair Association luncheon, Vice Adm. Tom Kilcline, Naval Air Forces Pacific commander, commended the companies for their hard work and dedication in repairing the ship after a May 22 fire.

The Port of San Diego Ship Repair Association has donated $15,000 to help cover expenses at the youth center swimming pool run by Barrio Station, a community advocacy organization.

The swimming pool, at 2175 Newton Ave. in Barrio Logan, relies on donations during July and August.

Children under the age of 18 pay 50 cents to use the pool; visitors 18 and older pay $1.

The ship repair coalition represents more than 75 companies involved in ship repair, conversion, overhaul and modernization.
