Somewhere in the Arabian Sea

Hosted by  • 

Life aboard the USS John C. Stennis, an aircraft carrier in the Arabian Sea that supported bombing missions over Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. Only a few dozen people on board actually fly F-18s and F-14's. It takes the rest of the crew - over 5,000 people - to keep them in the air. The entire hour is devoted to this story.
