Welcome Aboard Shipmate!
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you aboard the world’s finest warship – USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). During your tour, you will witness firsthand why this ship and crew enjoy a legacy of greatness unmatched in the Navy today. You will find the key to our success is teamwork. We are excited to greet you as a shipmate.
This great vessel’s inherent capability, brought to life by the courage and commitment of men and women like you, exemplifies overwhelming combat power unlike any other in the world. We employ that to advance peace, deter aggression and defend freedom around the world. Our combat readiness results from two closely aligned factors – the ship’s exemplary condition and the crew’s passion to be the best.
If there is anything specific you need, please don’t hesitate to ask. I encourage you to connect with your sponsor, make contact with our Family Readiness group and plug-in to John C. Stennis’ website for more information.
Again, welcome aboard!
Capt. Ronald Reis
