TR Hosts Fleet Forces Commander

Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group (TRCSG) – Adm. Phil Davidson, Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces (USFF) and FLTCM(AW/SW/IDW) Chuck Clarke, U.S. Fleet Forces Fleet Master Chief, visited the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71).

The visit occurred on Feb. 3-4 during the ship’s COMPTUEX assessment and certification for their upcoming deployment.

Davidson took to the deck plates, visiting the arresting gear engine room, primary flight control, squadron spaces, the jet engine shop, ordnance spaces and the propulsion plant to thank the Sailors for their hard work and dedication.

Clarke met with command master chiefs and chiefs from across the strike group, attended a CPO 365 event with first class petty officers and attended a meeting with TR’s Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD), where Sailors had the opportunity to ask questions and listen to his take on the program.

After visiting multiple spaces throughout the ship, the tour concluded in the jet shop.

TR is underway participating in Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX), which tests the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group’s ability to effectively react to real-world scenarios and perform as an integrated unit.
