Remember on Monsters, Inc. when the monsters were contaminated by the kids and the squad dropped in to decontaminate them. Here is one of the drills we practice in case a contaminated person is also wounded. The stains on my hood are from the fake blood to simulate the casualty. Everyone calls me Big Bird in this get-up.

So I don't know how to spell Sacajuwea, but hooked on phonic worked for me. I have to admit up front these are not my pictures. There is a media department onboard and one of the Navy photographers shot these. We had our own air show out at sea yesterday, as the flight deck prepared to awe the Brazilian visitors. It was exhilarating to stand outside in the sunshine and watch the performance. The planes flew over in formation with an E2 in the lead.

It's highway to the danger zone here on the flight deck.

Hello from onboard the USS Carl Vinson, the strength of the sea. We recently set off on our first deployment in 4 years. We were off to train and be tested in operational skills. We were called to Haiti to aide in a relief effort. In a ravished nation, we witnessed heartwrenching injuries and stories of lost love ones and lonely survivors.
