PBS TV Series and Premiere of Carrier this Sunday

Have you ever wondered what it was like to be at sea living on a floating city for months at a time? If so, the American public will get that an opportunity to see firsthand what life is like aboard an aircraft carrier starting this Sunday. A 10-part series of "Carrier" will air on Public Broadcasting System (PBS) from April 27 to May 1. Carrier was filmed in 2005 while USS Nimitz was deployed for a six-month deployment in the Pacific and Persian Gulf, in support of the war on terrorism. The documentary will allow people an unfettered look at life for the 5,000+ sailors who called Nimitz their home. The chronicle of life aboard Nimitz will focus on a handful of 15 enlisted men, women and officers.

"I really enjoyed this first episode, and I definitely will recommend it to everyone that wants to know how the real Navy is," said Aerographer's Mate 2nd Class (SW) Katheryn Roe, Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, San Diego.
