Ronald Reagan Tsunami Help

According to Argghhh!!! here, the USS Ronald Reagan is in Hawaii "in support of Operation Unified Assistance, the humanitarian operation effort in the wake of the Tsunami that struck South East Asia." It will not deploy to SE Asia, as I first thought, but
The aircraft carrier and its crew of 3,000 Sailors departed San Diego Jan. 11 to conduct local operations off the coast of California and to deliver two C-2A Greyhound aircraft from Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 30 (VRC-30).

The two aircraft are being delivered to Hawai’i and are expected to augment Combined Support Force 536 (CSF-536) airlift assets to assist with tsunami relief efforts.
