"Aircraft Carrier Stennis Has Biggest Ordnance Onload Since 2010"
Thanks to Zero Hedge and the tip from Chuck:
"Nearly two weeks ago, we were surprised to read on the Navy's website that one of America's prize aircraft carriers, CVN-74, John C. Stennis . . . as part of an operational training period in preparation for future deployments, just underwent not only its first ordnance onload since 2010, but, according to Senior Chief Aviation Ordnanceman Jason Engleman, G-5 division's leading chief petty officer, 'the biggest ordnance onload we've seen.'"
"USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) visited Naval Magazine (NAVMAG) Indian Island, the Navy’s primary ordnance storage and handling station on the West Coast, to onload six million pounds of ammunition, Jan. 13-15. 'This is the biggest ordnance onload we’ve seen,' . . . 'We haven’t had an onload since December 2010, and we are ready to show what this warship can do.'”
"The ship plans to take on two-thirds of its weight capacity during the three day evolution. Bombs, missiles and rounds will be onloaded by 1,400 crane lifts."
THAT STENNIS WARNED DURING THE LAST PERSIAN GULF DEPLOYMENT BY THE IRANIAN NOT TO RETURN!!
That such information being made public might seem strange to some folks. BUT PERHAPS A MESSAGE IS BEING SENT!!
"You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not
alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come." - - Matthew 24:6.
