Two Sailors serving aboard the guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea (CG 58) were promoted to senior chief petty officers during a frocking ceremony on the ship’s flight deck, June 5.
The ceremony for Senior Chief Engineman Jeffery Clark and Senior Chief Culinary Specialist Michael Vira was held during an all-hands call.
“This is a truly well deserved promotion for Senior Chief Clark and Senior Chief Vira,” said Command Master Chief Lewis Jackson, the ship’s senior enlisted leader. “They are outstanding leaders who personify the Philippine Sea spirit of excellence.”
