Fitz in the Morning: Troop Salute

Cameron McKay of the US Navy

Who among us can say they are excited every day they go to work? Well most of the men and women who serve aboard our nation’s naval vessels, can make that claim proudly. While we commute, they launch planes, missiles, or Helicopters and it’s an adventure every day. Today we salute Chief Boatswain’s Mate Cameron McKay, from Seattle. Chief McKay is assigned to the guided missile destroyer USS Sterett, which is part of the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group and is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations. McKay and the rest of the sailors in the carrier group ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region, connecting the Mediterranean and Pacific through the Western Indian Ocean and three critical chokepoints to the free flow of global commerce. Our navy serves a vital role, not only in the protection of the American way, but also in the free commerce of the entire globe. For doing his part to keep our seas free, today we salute Chief Botswain’s Mate Cameron McKay of the United States Navy.
