Baking Rolls of the USS Stennis

Seaman Mark Andaya prepares fresh rolls for the evening meal in the aft galley of the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) on Nov. 7, 2006. Andaya is a U.S. Navy culinary specialist aboard the Stennis, which is currently the flagship for Carrier Strike Group 3.

U.S. Navy aircraft carriers typically have two large bakeries on board. The aft baker, located in the rear of the ship and several decks below the flight deck, is the main bakery. Most bakery bread products are produced in the aft bakery. The forward bakery typically supports the forward galley, where sailors and Marines are served "express" meals. The forward galley is the Navy's rendition of a fast food eatery.
