1 August 2010- Reenlistment.  As part of the all volunteer force crew members commit to serve a set number of years.  Once their enlistment is up they have the option to extend their service and re-enlist.  Recently Petty Officer Humbert signed up to serve a few more years and re-affirmed his oath in a short ceremony on the mess decks.  A couple of pictures from the day are posted along with the oath of re-enlistment at the bottom of the page.

Against All enemies, foreign and domestic;
That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same,
That I will obey the orders

And the orders of the Officers appointed over me,
According to the regulations
And the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
So help me God.
