The GW will not be bringing additional "foreign" Sailors to Japan. The ship is comprised of two main commands: GW ship's force (~3200 Sailors) and the Atsugi based airwing (~2000 Sailors). Per USN regulation, all Sailors assigned to ship's force of a nuclear powered vessel must be United States Citizens. Any "foreign" or more accurately stated non-U.S. Citizen Sailors would have to be part of the airwing and they were already here serving on the USS Kitty Hawk. The airwing on GW is the same one that was on KH - Carrier Airwing Five.
