Tell me a Story June 2020

Sunsets, Full Moon, and Miscellaneous Photos 
Taken aboard the USS HARRY S TRUMAN

Sun rays in the water. 

One of the reconnaissance planes calling it a day. Coming in for a landing.

A sight you don’t see often... a Coast Guard boat being pulled By the Navy. The CG boat was damaged while trying to rescue another ship damaged by a storm the night before. The civilian boat was pulled to shore by another CG boat, while this one waited to also be pulled to shore. The CG send a second boat out to retrieve this one. The ship doing the pulling was the USS Forrest Sherman. I just happened to be on board with the rescue happened. 

A puffer fish caught shallow waters on the beach in Duqm, Oman. 

A B52 and some Air Force fighter jets do a strategically timed fly over while we were along side the Eisenhower for a “Joint Forces” photo op. Along with another one of our escort ships.

This is a Canadian ship we did a multi national exercise with in the North Atlantic.  

A photo I took as I was being flown to one of our escort ships the USS Forrest Sherman to see a few of their sailors.

I didn’t make I time to catch the moon rising, but I did get this shot.

Another beautiful full moon. 

One of our escorts the USS Normandy at our port call of Duqm, Oman. Duqm, Oman is not much more than a small port, which they are trying to make into another Dubai.

It is eerie how calm the ocean can be at times.
