It's remarkable when you think about an aircraft carrier that has 5,000 people living on it.The USS John C. Stennis is a floating city and is tremendous to see the men and women who dedicate their lives to public service, protecting the freedom and the rights that we all enjoy. It was really inspiring and information, to me, to see all the activities that are involved in these sailors daily lives. These folks are local residents from Hawaii who joined the Active Duty Navy.
