Image of the Day: TR Holds Burial-at-Sea

US Navy’s Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) held a burial-at-sea while on deployment in the Atlantic Ocean, February 4.

The ceremonial honor guard paid their respect with a bow for a moment of silence while a player was read during the burial for the retired Marine Lt. Col. Walter H. Shauer Jr.

Theodore Roosevelt is underway participating in a composite training unit exercise, which tests the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group’s ability to effectively react to real-world scenarios and perform as an integrated unit.
