Congratulations on receiving orders to USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT (CVN 71), the most battle-tested carrier in the fleet and currently located at Naval Station Norfolk in Norfolk, Virginia. You are about to embark on a challenging and rewarding tour of duty. The carrier exemplifies the proud tradition and heritage of her namesake, the 26th President and Commander of America's first U.S. volunteer cavalry, the "Rough Riders”. We look forward to your arrival and are certain you will become an integral part of our “Big Stick” team. This will be a very gratifying experience for both you and your family. If you have any questions about your move or need a sponsor, please contact the Command Sponsor Coordinator at TRSPONSOR@cvn71.navy.mil. To quote President Roosevelt, “Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far!” Welcome Aboard, Rough Rider!
