I am also honored to have been asked by SHIFT Communciations own Todd Defren to pen a guest post for his widely-read PR-Squared blog on Monday.
I was invited to be a member of a select group of people to be deployed on the U.S.S. John C. Stennis aircraft carrier later this month. The trip includes a seat-of-your-pants flight from North Island Naval Air Station to the flight deck of the Stennis aboard an S-2 (or COD as they call it) aircraft complete with carrier cable landing. We’ll then spend the next 24 hours getting to know the officers and crew of this floating city to get a better appreciation of how the Navy and this proud ship work.
