Person Overboard

When I did the deployment on the carrier, I sometimes shuddered to think what would happen if I fell overboard at night, and ended up bobbing in the water watching the ship sail away. For this Sailor on the USS Theodore Roosevelt, it looks like his (her?) shipmates must have seen the Sailor fall overboard at 0215, and the Sailor was rescued expeditiously.

I just hope that the new Navy uniforms, when they come out, don't make it harder to see someone who's in the water.

i am the sailor that fell overboard. i am a girl and i didnt exactly fall. we were dumping bails over and the metal got rapped around my leg and when they pused it over i was attached. they noticed i was gone when they turned around and i wasnt there. i waited over an hour for a helicopter and was a couple miles away from the ship when they found me. it was terrifying. but i am ok. my email is if anyone has any questions about that night. P.S. I was in my dungerees but luckily i was able to pull my strobe light out.
