Livin' high on the hog at sea

About the time I savored smoked hog at Oinktoberfest, the culinary specialists of the USS Nimitz served roast pig to the crew.

INDIAN OCEAN (Oct. 13, 2009) -- Machinist's Mate Fireman Maria Cortez, right, waits for Culinary Specialist Seaman Apprentice Torrance Davis to serve her a slice of roasted pig during the 234th Navy Birthday celebration aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68). The Nimitz Carrier Strike Group is on a routine deployment to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.

  1. My son on the Nimitz told me about the roast pig. He said it was great!

  2. THanks, Dianne. It's always nice to hear from the families of our brave Sailors and Marines on the high seas.

    This is the 2nd time a family member has posted a comment (I also heard from one of the photographers once, too).
