Ahead of APEC Summit, Obamas spend Veterans Day aboard USS Carl Vinson

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama spent Veterans Day aboard the USS Carl Vinson attending the first ever college basketball game played on the deck of and aircraft carrier.  It was the UNC Tar Heels vs The Michigan State Spartans.  The Obamas sat center court, talking animatedly during the game, watching with as many as seven thousand servicemen and women and guests on the carrier docked outside San Diego.  The Tar Heels prevailed.  The Obamas left for Hawaii where the president is attending several meetings including hosting world leaders at APEC.  He travels to Australia and Indonesia later this week.
