Curfew set for carrier air wing in wake of Tumon brawl

Carrier Air Wing Five is a carrier air wing based out of Japan.

The commander of Task Force 70 has ordered a curfew for the service members in Carrier Air Wing Five (CVW-5), following a brawl in Tumon early last Sunday morning.

In response to a request for comment, task force spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Sean Brophy said: “Disorderly behavior is not consistent with DoD values or standards of conduct and it is not representative of the majority of service members who conduct themselves appropriately.”

Brophy said the unit is now limited to a 9 p.m. weekday curfew and 11:59 p.m. weekend curfew while in Guam for warfighting training exercises and operations.

A Joint-Region Marianas spokesperson told PNC News, they don’t have an exact number for how many sailors the curfew applies to.

The spokesperson could not confirm if anyone being investigated or questioned is at all connected to CVW-5, however they said, any Commanding Officers (CO), can change the liberty policy of their sailors at anytime.

The curfew was set after the incident on Sunday, which is still being investigated by NCIS along with local authorities.
