Chief Warrant Officer Eric Allen of Elizabethtown addresses the crew of the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman last week over the ship’s speaker system in the Arabian Sea. The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations in support of naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region, connecting the Mediterranean and the Pacific through the western Indian Ocean and three strategic choke points.

A coincidence not reported in this article is that the Sailor who took the picture and reported the news is also from Elizabethtown, KY. MC3 Benjamin Waddell was in the CCHS Class of 2011.
