I Am A GONZALEZ Sailor - Return Remix

It's not quite Friday yet, but it feels like it should be. GONZALEZ Sailors are in the midst of completing an Aviation Certification, Aviation Readiness Qualification, Fleet Synthetic Training, and an Engineering Team Trainer...all while wrapping up remaining items from our shipyard period before sea trials. As I watch some of my Sailors participate in two or even all three of these significant training events, I am easily reminded of how amazing Navy Sailors truly are.

So, I figured it was time to bring back our GONZALEZ recruiting video! The Sailor's Creed is an important aspect of many ceremonies onboard our ship and to honor the best crew in the Navy, we incorporated a GONZALEZ version of the Sailor's creed with pictures and video from our 2008 deployment. The full DV version looks much better, but this compressed version was suitable for publication on the blog. Hit play on the video below to check it out.

I am a GONZALEZ Sailor.
I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and
I will obey the orders of those appointed over me.
I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and
all who have gone before me to defend freedom and democracy around the world.
I proudly serve my country’s Navy combat team with Honor, Courage and Commitment.
I am committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all.
