As in years past, the USS Kitty Hawk put into port in Hong Kong for Thanksgiving. Families of the service personal flew to Hong Kong to be with their families. At the last minute, the Communist Chinese refuse to let the USS Kitty Hawk and it's escorts ships along with 8,000 military personal to enter the port of Hong Kong. The USS Kitty Hawk along with their escorts ships turned around and headed to Japan. While on the way to Japan the Communist in China, said it was okay for the U.S. ships to enter Hong Kong. Of course it was too late because the ships were already under way for Japan.
