Local man in By Wayne Howlett Flying is a vision mankind has had since the beginning of time. For nearly 100 years, people have reaped the benefits of air travel. It is essential to today's way of life. In a perfect world, airplanes would only be used for the better- ment of civilization. Unfortunately, beginning with World War I, planes and other air- craft have been used in combat. In a world that uses these devices for devastation, the U.S. Navy has found a mission: to protect free- dom, whether it be by sea or air, with the latest technology in air- craft aviation. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Bryan D. Jones is a crew member aboard the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis. As the 36-year-old son of Reesena Jones of Dagsboro, he is currently deployed overseas par- ticipating in Operation Enduring Freedom. As an aviation electri- cian, Jones maintains electrical systems. It is not an easy task for Jones and his 5,000 shipmates to operate and maintaina combat-ready naval vessel weighing more than 95,000 tons. As a member of the air depart- ment, Jones works on the flight deck. Stennis' 70-plus aircraft operate from the 257-foot wide, 1092-foot long deck. Aircraft such as the F/A- 18 Hor- net and SH-60 Seahawk are two of the many types of aircraft aboard Stennis that keep the Navy onthe cutting edge of military aviation. Working with these new devices and technologies can mean long and rigorous hours of flight opera- tions. Even with a crew of more than 2,000 sailors devoted to launching and recovering aircraft, 16 to 18- hour shifts are the norm. Being ready to deploy on a mo- ment's notice means that sailors. may not be able to see family and friends as often as they would like. Jones was not able to spend the CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 15 - Nov. 21, 2002.41 Operation Enduring Freedom holidays with his family; instead venng spirit. They know the im- he was on his way overseas two months ahead of schedule. "The most challenging aspect of being deployed is being away from family and friends," said Jones, a 1993 graduate of Indian River High School. Commissioned in 1995, Stennis was named after former Sen. John C. Stennis, who served in Co'n- gress from 1947 to 1988 unwavering dedication to duty. As chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee from 1969 to 1980, Sen. Stennis consis- tently supported a strong U.S. military and gained the honorary title of "father of America's mod- em navy." Just like the ship's namesake, sailors aboard Stennis continue to serve their country with an unwa- portance of defending America's shores. "We deploy Navy ships over- seas to ensure freedom will ring forever," said Jones, a 17-year Navy veteran. Along with the many demands of Navy life, there are many bene- fits and rewards "I get to fix components that make planes fly. I really enjoy knowing I have a direct influence on the readiness of Navy aircraft," Jones said. For more than 200 years, the Navy has been on the forefront of America's defense, helping to protect freedom. With sailors like Jones, the Navy is looking to the skies for the future, with new ad- vancements in training and tech- nology.
