Want to Get Underway?
By CDR Matt Kawas, Commanding Officer of USS Fort Worth (LCS 3) Crew 103
U.S. Navy Sailors have sailed the open seas, around the world, around the clock for the past 239 years. But have you ever wondered what it’s like to be on a warship in the middle of the ocean? Are you curious what we see as we cruise along the waves at night? Have you ever wanted to tour a U.S. Navy ship but have not yet had the opportunity? Well, now you don’t have to look any further than your computer screen or mobile device to get a glimpse of what life is like for us on the high seas.
On April 10, 2015 at 11 a.m. EDT, I invite you to join my crew and I for a live tour of the littoral combat ship USS Fort Worth (LCS 3) as we operate in the waters of Southeast Asia. Under the glow of the red night lights, you’ll get a 30-minute tour inside the “skin” of the ship, and will have the chance to interact with the Sailors who operate Fort Worth. It’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss, so make sure to post questions for our Sailors on the Navy’s social media and watch the tour on Friday by going to the Navy’s Google+ Page, YouTube Channel, or Navy Live blog.
UPDATE: Watch the full video here.
