Wild art: Duncanite helps with USS Ronald Reagan flight operations

Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) Airman Devan Schaeffer, from Duncan, Oklahoma, signals an EA-18G Growler, attached to the Shadowhawks of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 141, on the flight deck of the Navy’s only forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) during Keen Sword 21. Keen Sword is an example of the strength of U.S.-Japan Alliance, and the foundation of peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region for more than 60 years. The relationships built and maintained during these events are critical to the shared capability to respond to contingencies at a moment’s notice.
