Officer returnsfrom deployment
Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Patrice D. Taylor, daughter of Diane M. Page of Capitol Heights, and her fellow shipmates recently returned from a scheduled deployment while assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, homeported in Norfolk, Va.
Taylor’s unit launched 10,000 combat flights totaling nearly 30,750 flight hours and provided surveillance, reconnaissance and close air support to ground forces in Iraq. The Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group participated in Operation Steel Curtain and Maritime Security Operations.
Carriers like Theodore Roosevelt are deployed throughout the world to maintain U.S. presence and provide rapid response in times of crisis.
They serve as a highly visible deterrent to would-be aggressors, and are equipped with the most versatile and powerful weapons and aircraft available.
Taylor is a 2001 graduate of DuVal High School in Lanham and joined the Navy in September 2003.
