Recognition: Rachel Womack of Prescott serving on aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt

U.S. Navy Aviation Structural Mechanic 3rd Class Rachel Womack, from Prescott, is assigned to the “Eightballers” of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 8. In this photo, Womack wipes the rotor head of an MH-60S Sea Hawk in the hangar bay of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) March 16, 2021. The Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group is on a scheduled deployment to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations in the Indian Ocean. As the U.S. Navy’s largest forward-deployed fleet, 7th Fleet routinely operates and interacts with 35 maritime nations while conducting missions to preserve and protect a free and open Indo-Pacific Region. With more than 90% of all trade traveling by sea, and 95% of the world’s international phone and internet traffic carried through fiber optic cables lying on the ocean floor, Navy officials continue to emphasize that the prosperity and security of the United States is directly linked to a strong and ready Navy.
