In the Pacific Ocean, near the Hawaiian Islands, the USS Nimitz (CVN 68) is haze gray and underway. The ship has been in dry dock for a year and a half, and this is the first time at sea for much of the crew. While the sailors train in skills crucial to mission success, a small group has begun another journey.
Over 300 Nimitz first class petty officers are up for promotion. They’re under evaluation for the next several months, and if they make the cut, will put on anchors and join the ranks of the Navy chiefs.
