Thread: Aircraft carrier

  1. #1

    Default Aircraft carrier

    I'm so excited, cause this is my first time witnessing an aircraft carrier in my country. USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT is now in Singapore anyone here from the Navy???

    I used to be in the Navy and actually served on the Theodore Roosevelt. It is a huge ship and you will really love seeing it. It always amazed me how such a huge ship could stay afloat, but it does!

    That's one big-ass boat. Have a nephew that served on one, not the Roosevelt, though.

    What always amazed me was how fast those thing are. One night on watch, I tracked on come over the horizon, pass about two or so miles behind us, then vanish over the opposite horizon. Whole thing happened so fast . . . .

    Yeah!!! And the F18 on it looked amazing as well. Too bad I couldn't take any photos due to security issues. But That's really neat
    What was his rank then? I'm under training to be a Sergeant :p

    Nice!! How did you cope with yourself onboard it. Like dealing with the ab/dl side of you when you're out sailing.

    One of my Cousins, Lt. Cmdr. RKW served on the USS Theodore Roosevelt. He flew as the EWO on one of the Teddy Roosevelt's E-2 AWACs planes.

    Anyway, he is a Captain now,

    I remember when it was being built as it was built at the Newport News shipyard in Virginia. It's in the Nimitz class and is of modular construction, and I think it's awesome.

    Don't recall, but it was non-commissioned of some flavor. Our navy doesn't have sergeants... unless you count Marines as navy.

    He was involved in electronic intelligence. For obvious reasons, he was never very specific about what he did.
