Why I Serve: USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) Edition

On any given day there are more than 380,000 Sailors, active-duty and Reserve, ready to defend America, around the world and around the clock. From diverse backgrounds, they join the Navy to serve their country with honor, courage and commitment.

For each Sailor, the drive to serve is different.

The #WhyIServe campaign provides our Sailors an opportunity to share their personal “why I serve” statements.

This week’s #WhyIServe submissions are from Sailors aboard USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75).

The aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) returned home in April from a nine-month deployment to the 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility, where it conducted maritime security operations supporting theater security cooperation efforts and Operation Enduring Freedom.
