Mississippi Guests Board USS Theodore Roosevelt

Mississippi distinguished visitors recently spent 24 hours aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt (CNV 71) located 120 miles off the coast of Florida.

 

The Distinguished Visitor (DV) program is hosted by Naval Air Forces and is focused on giving citizens a rare firsthand look at life aboard an aircraft carrier to witness the pride and professionalism of the young men and women who serve the country at sea.

DVs are leaders in their local and state civic, education or business communities and include legislative representatives, city council members, corporate executives, educators, and other leaders of broad-based organizations who have not served in the military.

Participating in the Aug. 22-23 trip was Nick Bain, Mississippi House of Representatives Michael Evans and Kyle Rutledge, Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors; Dede Mogollon, director of Tourism for Lauderdale County; and Jim Copeland, NAS Meridian community planning liaison officer.
