US 3rd Fleet Commander Tours USS John C. Stennis

Vice Adm. Nora Tyson, walked through eight rainbow sideboys Aug. 12, exiting USS John C. Stennis’ (CVN 74) flight deck and commencing her first visit to the ship as commander, U.S. 3rd Fleet.

Tyson observed how the John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group (JCSCSG) crew was performing during composite training unit exercise/joint task force exercise (COMPTUEX/JTFEX), which when complete, will give her the data she needs to determine if they are deployment ready.

One of the first stops on Tyson’s tour was to an awards ceremony in the ship’s training complex, where she pinned warfare devices on and presented awards to Stennis Sailors.

JCSCSG is scheduled to complete COMPTUEX/JTFEX later this month and earn the ‘deployment ready’ certification.
