The USA George Washington is in Brisbane for4 days with time off for R&R. This is one very large 24 story aircraft carrier that has been at sea for some time and a crew just busting for some great shore leave time.
By average that means around 600 gay (LGBT) sailors, and already we have had reports of a handful of sailors at Sportsman Hotel, Spring Hill next to the city.
From all reports they will be heading back there tonight with a heap of their mates. SPORTIES were quick off the mark to offer all USA sailors staff priced drinks as a welcome gesture.
Brisbane can expect a huge boost to the economy over the next 4 days as the sailors make the most of their leave before taking part in an extended joint training exercise that will keep them at sea for an extended period.
