Guest Blog Post - Gail Werner-Robertson

My favorite memory of JCOC 75 was my overnight stay on the nuclear aircraft carrier USS George Washington. Of course it was thrilling to see the night flight operations; but even more impressive were the many conversations we had with the crew. Every person, from the lowest ranking to the admiral, all showed tremendous pride in their mission.

Let it be clear, everyone knew what the mission was, how they contributed to the mission and the importance of what they were doing. It sounds trite, but these crew members really did exemplify the best of what this country has to offer. These special interactions gave me tremendous pride in not only my country but also the youth who are so proudly protecting our freedoms.
