USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71


USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) is a key element of our country's forward-deployed defense strategy. Tasked with maintaining open sea lanes of trade and communications, TR is capable of projecting air superiority to all points of the globe. The embarked Carrier Air Wing Eight aircraft serve as outstanding instruments of peace. Anytime and anywhere TR reports for duty, she brings 4.5 acres of sovreign U.S. territory and 97,000 tons of diplomacy. TR's equipment and crew are always maintained at the highest state of readiness. This enables the ship to carry out a wide variety of missions, including: air warfare, strike warfare, surface warfare, undersea warfare and electronic warfare. TR also shares the task of replenishing ships at sea and performing a variety of non-combat missions, such as the rescue at sea of people in distress and the transport of refugees and others in need of help. People make TR more than a mere mass of steel, cables and pipes. She is a floating city of 5,500 professional men and women from every state in the Union. It is the veteran Sailor with gold on his dress blues and the young 17-year old, away from home for the first time, who provide TR with heart and soul. Leadership, training and professionalism blend each of these individual personalities toward one goal ... being ready to exercise the power of TR in support of the "Forward Presence" mission of the U.S. Navy.

Tiger Cruise here we come. We have our flights our rooms and most importantly confirmation from the Navy.  We are good to go. Mark used the word "epic" describing his excitement.   I have to agree. I have never been more excited about a trip in my life!  9 days on one of the most powerful warships in the world.  My wife is worried that they will have to drag me off the ship when we get to home port.  Might happen!

I'm going on the TC on the Big Stick 2015 and couldn't be more excited.

My son, Joshua, is a catapult officer on the TR. If all goes well I will be joining the Tiger Cruise later this fall. I am already excited anticipating the time on board!
