We wanted to take a moment to thank U.S. Navy Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class Zachary Lang from Harker Heights, Texas for his service on board the guided-missile destroyer USS Stockdale!

In the photo above, he observes the flight deck of the guided-missile destroyer USS Stockdale (DDG 106) during flight quarters in the Arabian Gulf, Jan. 10, 2019.

USS Anchorage (LPD 23)

The Stockdale is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations in support of naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region, connecting the Mediterranean and the Pacific through the western Indian Ocean and three strategic choke points.

We can't thank our service men and women in all branches of the military for all they do to protect our freedoms. All photos of Central Texans serving our country are welcome for submission to our website. We love seeing them!
