Chief Fire Controlman Joshua Gaudin of Lafayette is currently serving aboard the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy (CG-60).

According to the Navy, The USS Normandy remains at sea in the Atlantic as part of the certified Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group, ready for tasking in order to protect the crew from the risks posed by COVID-19, following their successful deployment to the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet areas of operation.

Keeping HSTCSG at sea in U.S. 2nd Fleet, in the sustainment phase of OFRP, allows the ship to maintain a high level of readiness during the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Navy says.
