Eisenhower (CVN 69) today to reunite with family members currently serving aboard Ike.Crew members from Enterprise toured the Ike and seized the opportunity to spend time with family members and spouses they had not seen for nearly five months.“Twenty-one of the twenty-two passengers aboard the COD had family members aboard Eisenhower,” said Senior Chief Hospital Corpsman Cheri R. Snaza, the leading chief petty officer of Enterprise’s medical department. “They ranged from spouses, brothers, sisters and cousins to uncles and nephews.”Snaza, whose husband is Command Master Chief Gregg Snaza, the command master chief aboard Eisenhower, thought it would be an auspicious undertaking to help arrange a rendezvous between crewmembers from Enterprise and their respective family members aboard Eisenhower.“Taking the Ike’s deployment into consideration, it was going to be a 13-month time period before we were going to be able to see our spouses or significant family members,” Snaza said. “My husband and I began chatting about how we could accomplish some kind of a cross-deck.”After coordination and communication between the two carriers’ commanding officers and operations departments, the visit was made possible.The visit to the Ike included a welcome aboard by Eisenhower’s commanding officer, a group photo, individual photos, and most importantly, time for family members to spend with each other.“We wanted each Sailor to get as much time as possible with their family member,” said Snaza. “Because we went over via COD, instead of a helicopter, we were able to afford the family members much more time with each other.” “As soon as I walked off of the COD, my cousin was there waiting with arms wide open,” said Yeoman 2nd Class Jacqueline M. Martinez, assigned to the Screwtops of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 123. “The trip was phenomenal. I’m very thankful for the opportunity.”The Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group (IKE CSG)recently arrived in U.S. 5th Fleet, replacing the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group, July 17, augmenting the presence of the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group (ECSG)in the region.Enterprise and Eisenhower are both currently deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, July 27, 2012; Image: US Navy Share this article July 27, 2012 Training & Education Back to overview,Home naval-today Family Members Reunite on USS Eisenhower last_img read more

first_imgAlisson Becker went from hero to zero in the eyes of Liverpool fans after his extraordinary mistake gifted Leicester City a goal.The most expensive goalkeeper in history wowed Premier League fans with his impudent chip over Anthony Knockaert last week. Jesus Christ Alisson, that’s worse than Karius😂— Jay White (@jaywhitebcafc) September 1, 2018 Alisson you idiot! We didn’t pay £60m for you to dribble and turn in your area of expertise. You had one job and that was to clear it. #LEILIV— Jackson To (@jacksonto888) September 1, 2018 But he was brought crashing back down to earth after being caught in possession trying to dribble out from the back.After receiving a woeful back-pass from Virgil van Dijk, the former Roma shot-stopper shaped his body as if to clear the ball down the right-hand touchline.With Kelechi Iheanacho closing, the flamboyant keeper instead decided to whip out a conveniently timed Cruyff Turn on the byline so as to deceive the striker.But the Nigeria international read the attempted piece of skill and easily dispossessed the bewildered Alisson and squared the ball for Rachid Ghezzal to tap into a virtually empty net. So is Alisson also going to Turkey on loan?— Deji Faremi (@deejayfaremi) September 1, 2018 2 It mattered very little in the end as first half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino ensured Ghezzal’s strike was a mere consolation.As Ruud Gullit once infamously said: “A goalkeeper is a goalkeeper because he can’t play football.”While the £67million summer signing will surely bounce back from the mistake, several Liverpool fans were far to quick to chastise the 25-year-old. Check out the best Tweets below. As long as it stops him doing it ever again— Haydn (@haydnstpierre1) September 1, 2018 Does Alisson have a concussion🤔— SULTAN (@SultanBinKhalid) September 1, 2018 Awful by Alisson, only a matter of time till his over confidence let him down and here it is. Should have booted it for a throw. Very bad play, game on— Sean Williams (@seanwills11) September 1, 2018 Poor from Alisson, just kick the ball lad.— Jake (@Addonnn) September 1, 2018 Alisson wasn’t joking. pic.twitter.com/u2uQqYsCT3— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) September 1, 2018center_img Hahahahaha Alisson is a fraud #LeiLiv— This Charming Man (@LHS_TCM) September 1, 2018 Sooooo casual from VVD, far too sloppy and Alisson had his pants pulled down trying to be a superstar. Liverpool have paid the price for being complacent there— Duncan Wright (@dwright75) September 1, 2018 The Brazilian has been an otherwise brilliant signing Oh Alisson, Alisson #LEILIV pic.twitter.com/qencE10AM1— Susan Seddon 🚗🎶💕🐒 (@SuzeTwelve) September 1, 2018 Alisson has just caught the Karius virus 😂😂😂— Agostinho Sousa (@agostinhosousa7) September 1, 2018 Simon Mignolet to Alisson at full time pic.twitter.com/q7c4HGPdJ0— Taylor Budgell (@TaylorBudgell7) September 1, 2018 Thats way too cocky from Alisson— JulianLFC22 (@JulianLFC22) September 1, 2018 Alisson’s tekkers… pic.twitter.com/GzsNk1ql7B— Soccer AM (@SoccerAM) September 1, 2018 Alisson was robbed in possession by Kelechi Iheanacho 2last_img read more
