As Commanding Officer of USS Theodore Roosevelt, I highly encourage TR Sailors and their families to become involved in the outstanding public service initiatives my command is currently undertaking. Whether performing physical fitness training with local elementary students in support of the First lady’s “Let’s Read, Let’s Move” campaign, or helping to mentor and guide at-risk youth as part of the 14th Annual Hampton Roads Youth Summit, TR Sailors are heavily engaged throughout the region, giving back their time and experience to help make our communities a better place in which to live and raise our families.
