    Robin Williams visit to the USS Truman 2004


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Aurora Contreras of the U.S. Navy says meeting Robin Williams aboard the USS Harry S. Truman was one of her fondest memories from her 2004 deployment in the Persian Gulf. Contreras is shown kneeling to the left of the soldier whom Williams was standing behind. “I have always treasured those memories of him coming aboard,” Contreras said. “Deployments are very difficult and stressful and we don't get lots of free time when we are out to sea. So to see him there was a major highlight of our time onboard.” Image courtesy U.S. Navy.

    Robin Williams visited the USS Harry S. Truman as part of a USO comedy show in 2004 while the carrier conducted operation in the Persian Gulf. It was a memorable show, and he kindly posed for pictures with as many sailors as he could. It was a great time for us....thank you Robin Williams for the laughter. We'll miss you.
