This morning, Station 12 B-Shift hosted a very special ceremony. Damage Controlman First Class Gonzalez performed his re-enlistment ceremony for the United States Navy to continue serving our Nation.
US Navy Damage Controlmen do the work necessary for damage control, ship stability, firefighting, fire prevention, and chemical, biological and radiological warfare defense. They also act as the ship’s Fire Marshal and fire fighting leaders, and they train the ship’s company in for multiple emergency situations. So, it was only fitting that PO1 Gonzalez took his oath at an EPFD station.
Congratulations and Thank You for your service to our Nation. We wish you fair winds and calm seas, Sir!
