Congratulations on receiving orders to USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT (CVN 71), the most battle tested carrier in the fleet and currently located at the Northrop Grumman Newport News Naval Shipyard in Newport News, Virginia. We look forward to your arrival and you joining the “Big Stick” team. We are certain you will become an integral part of our team and this will be a very rewarding experience for both you and your family.
Each Sailor reporting for duty aboard THEODORE ROOSEVELT is assigned a sponsor by the Command Sponsor Program Coordinator. If you have received orders and have not received a sponsor message, contact the Training Department immediately and a sponsor will be assigned. You may call (757) 688-8790 or (757) 534-0707/1191 or e-mail TRSponsor@cvn71.navy.mil. Newly reporting personnel are reminded to provide their sponsors with up-to-date travel arrangements and contact information. In addition, access to the Newport News Shipbuilding and the THEODORE ROOSEVELT is restricted. You will require a Newport News Shipbuilding Badge to gain access through the turnstiles located on 31st street. Your sponsor will assist you in the submission of a badge request to prevent excessive delay in reporting.
