I received some additional photos from my trip to the CENTCOM AOR that were taken during my visits to the carrier USS HARRY S TRUMAN and cruiser USS NORMANDY. I want to share them with you because I believe they help to tell an important story. All too often all we see are photos of our aircraft carriers launching aircraft to deliver ordnance a thousand miles away in support of our troops on the ground in Afghanistan, or footage of an SM-3 missile being launched from the deck of a cruiser in the Pacific to shoot a failing and potentially dangerous satellite out of the sky. But we don’t always see the men and women below decks who are doing a variety of demanding jobs, day in – day out, around the clock that make everything else possible.
