0:00I’m I see three deadly and you’re
0:02watching the felony
0:37it’s been more than two years since Carl
0:42Vincent has seen foreign waters we’ve
0:44been through carrier qualifications com
0:452x and JT FX but for the senior
0:48leadership on board the training isn’t
0:50quite finished petty officer Hansel
0:52Pinto sits down with members of the
0:54regional security education program from
0:56the Naval Postgraduate School to find
0:58out what makes the program so important
1:00to Carrier Strike Group one’s deployment
1:02in order to sustain Carrier Strike Group
1:04one’s readiness members of the regional
1:06security education program from the
1:08Naval Postgraduate School visited Carl
1:10Vincent Abreu senior leadership on
1:12history and geopolitical affairs of the
1:15Middle East South Asia Southeast Asia
1:17and China and the idea behind the
1:20program is to enable better operational
1:22decision making by acquainting senior
1:25leaders with the regional security
1:27environments in which they can expect to
1:29operate mark huber program manager for
1:32Middle East and Central Asia at the
1:34center for civil military relations at
1:36the Naval Postgraduate School led a team
1:39of experts in a series of briefs on
1:41topics affecting the 5th fleet area of
1:43responsibility I’m an associate
1:46professor for the asia-pacific Center
1:48for security studies in Honolulu Hawaii
1:50professor of history and director of
1:52interdisciplinary studies at Towson
1:54University and the University of
1:55Maryland system I’m a professor at the
1:58asia-pacific sentence security studies
1:59in Honolulu I am a political strategic
2:03analyst on South Asia is one way of
2:05describing me the education team spent
2:07eight days aboard Carl Vinson and
2:09conducted more than 24 briefs in which
2:12they shared a central regional
2:13information designed to raise Carrier
2:16Strike Group one’s cultural and
2:18political awareness preparing sailors to
2:20carry out America’s mission so we’re
2:22able to provide a portfolio briefings
2:25that is suitable not just for the areas
2:28where the strike group is expected to
2:29operate but also to prepare the strike
2:32group for any contingency operations
2:34than might develop it’s a program that
2:36serves is a rich and deep resource for
2:41all the elements of the strike group the
2:43education team shared how the program
2:45benefits sailors on deployment
2:47it’s good for you to be aware of what’s
2:49going on in India and in Pakistan and
2:51also in Afghanistan in these regional
2:54areas where the US has an interest in in
2:56the case of Afghanistan still has forces
2:58I gives them a really a broad
3:00brushstroke of the kinds of issues and
3:03that are pertinent to the region the
3:06asia-pacific itself the Middle East
3:07region and makes them aware of exactly
3:10what are the hot flash points the Shelf
3:14is the hot topics that are relevant to
3:18their practice as well the more that you
3:20know about the mission the more that you
3:22know about the region the more that you
3:24know but the cultures I think the
3:27greater the chances that we’ll both
3:30avoid incidents that we don’t wish to
3:32have but also the better will represent
3:35the country petty officer Hansel pintos
3:38USS Carl Vinson all right are we stand

4:05minutes of cleaning station
4:12for good clean ship no matter what sweet
4:15in its infancy the US Navy borrowed
4:24heavily from the traditions and tactics
4:26employed by the British Navy now it’s
4:28our turn to lend a helping hand to our
4:30allies in England petty officer Alex
4:32King sat down with our British
4:33counterparts to discuss the training
4:35will receive all on board the British
4:37Navy is currently working to introduce
4:39an aircraft carrier into their fleet so
4:41where better to train their sailors than
4:43a board America’s favorite the RO Navy
4:45said about to bring in a new aircraft
4:48carrier into the Royal Fleet called the
4:51hms queen elizabeth it’s approximately
4:53seventy-five percent of the size of
4:55Covington no we haven’t had a ship this
5:00big in the Royal Navy ever so and having
5:03no fixed wing aircraft for the last four
5:05years on in the naval aviation world we
5:10are the fourth team to come out to a CVM
5:12to gain the experience from the UK us
5:16guys and absorb as much of the
5:19fixed-wing experience even involving
5:21cats and traps so that when we go back
5:23to the QE the hms queen elizabeth we can
5:26then push that experience out onto our
5:30flight decks so we can maintain a safe
5:32standard of aviation while on board
5:34these sailors will work side by side or
5:36air Department learn exactly how coral
5:38wins and gets the mission done this
5:40deployment I’m gonna be starting off on
5:42the bottom we start off initially
5:44looking from the vulture that looking
5:46down operations on the flight deck and
5:48once we’ve changed a vivid experience
5:50from looking there we then go onto the
5:51deck we do like you’re Chuck’s and your
5:53chains and from that once we’ve weighed
5:54that off we then go into the tractor
5:57driving and from tracks driving we then
5:59become you eyes on a director level and
6:01once we get to the wake and a stage we
6:02pass all the white assessments and pass
6:04the white boards we then go for your
6:06full director their presence and
6:08participation on deployment is proof
6:10positive of America and England’s
6:12commitment to partnership enhancing
6:14trust cooperation
6:16reporting for the 70 i’m petty officer
6:20alex king to continue our series Petty
6:27Officer Samuel Akane brings you a one
6:28minute exposure with our deployment
6:30resiliency counselor to discuss exactly
6:32how she can help you while on this
6:34deployment well I’m a representative
6:36from the fleet and Family Support Center
6:38I’m a licensed Marriage and Family
6:41Therapist and what I will be doing is
6:44working with the sailors as a counselor
6:46probably eighty percent of my job will
6:48be counseling another twenty percent
6:50i’ll be running groups and doing
6:52trainings across the board the the
6:56relationship dynamics whether it’s
6:58whether it’s with a romantic
7:00relationship whether it’s with friends
7:02whether it’s with coworkers whether it’s
7:04with with supervisors or supervisees i
7:08think a lot of the human relation
7:10dynamics are the same and so anybody can
7:14benefit from that so i would encourage
7:15anyone who is struggling in those areas

11:10Guthrie takes a water break with the
11:11fifth boss to discuss some of the

11:15available to the sailors aboard this
11:16mighty warship as the stress from being

11:21of ways to stay positive implementing a
11:24regular workout routine is a great way
11:26to relieve stress and improve your
11:27physical wellness it’s definitely a
11:29lifestyle you can’t force people to come
11:32out in one workout it has to be
11:33definitely it’s a mental mindset you
11:35have to mindset to get up every morning
11:36or stay up late at night after your
11:38watch to go take it upon yourself to
11:40work out that’s where we offer you know
11:42classes for those we call health seekers
11:43who might not feel comfortable we would
11:46go out and work with someone one-on-one
11:48or do it by themselves that extra help
11:50it’s great because you’re with a group
11:52of people going through the same thing
11:53that you’re going through here on the
11:55Carl Vinson there’s a wealth of options
11:56available for you to go out reverse of
11:58calories and have some fun at the same
12:00time oh my gosh there’s so many so many
12:03things to do here not just only with

12:07Rebecca we offer a great variety of
12:10different things to do but on the
12:12fitness and we have at least eight
12:15classes on Monday for classes on tuesday
12:18and then we start just started our
12:20intramural sports captain’s cup starting
12:21September night the fit box has built a
12:24reputation of being the hardest-working
12:25fitness trainer in our recent history
12:27and there is one definitive reason for
12:30her motivation my mentality is i don’t i
12:32don’t believe enough and i don’t believe
12:34in giving up so those that i had for
12:35instance i had one gentleman who was on
12:38Feb and refused to do everything his
12:40push-up was basically tapping the floor
12:42with his pinky and every day he came cuz
12:45he had to so I walk up Simpson you’re
12:47doing wonderful you’re doing great keep
12:49pushing and I just smile
12:51keep filling it and keep doing it sooner
12:53or later by the third week he ended up
12:54doing push-ups but there’s no way you
12:56can break me her motivation and drive
12:58are founded with a great deal of pride
13:00and dedication to the welfare of the
13:02crew and their individual fitness goals
13:04I love being on the Carl Vincent the
13:06goal for this cycle is to get least 55
13:09to 65 percent off reduction on set and I
13:12would encourage those that are out there
13:14that are you know fitness and tail to
13:16come out and help those that might need
13:18that extra push it’s all about helping
13:19the person next to you and when we start
13:21thinking that we can only get better of
13:23all the different amenities that are
13:24available to the sailors aboard fitness
13:27programs are some that shouldn’t be
13:28overlooked come on out get active and
