Aviation Machinist’s Mate Airman Devon Pinkerton, from Fredericksburg is assigned to the first-in-class aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford’s (CVN 78) aviation intermediate maintenance department, performs maintenance on a jet engine in Ford’s jet shop, March 6, 2023. Ford is underway in the Atlantic Ocean executing its Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX), an intense, multi-week exercise designed to fully integrate a carrier strike group as a cohesive, multi-mission fighting force and to test their ability to carry out sustained combat operations from the sea. As the first-in-class ship of Ford-class aircraft carriers, CVN 78 represents a generational leap in the U.S. Navy’s capacity to project power on a global scale to carry out sustained combat operations from the sea.
