500 Sailors Spell HEROES on USS Yorktown Flight Deck


On Friday, about 500 sailors from the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command at Joint Base Charleston volunteered at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum as part of the Trident United Way’s Day of Caring.

The volunteers teamed with Patriots Point staff to complete dozens of projects including:
  • Cleaning of aircraft
  • Removing debris from the ships
  • Painting the Vietnam Experience
  • Reconditioning sandbags
  • Painting the USS Yorktown’s flight deck
  • Museum landscaping
  • and more
