“I find it a privilege to drive through the front gate to Naval Station Norfolk every morning, for me this will be as close to being in the Navy as I will ever get. I love all the work I do here at Seaward Services and get great enjoyment knowing I am depended on in several areas. What our team does here at V-47 is AMAZING!”
Nancy Allen, Warehouse Specialist
Norfolk Naval Station (Seaward Services)
I got out of Mass. Maritime in 1979 and have worked on most types of ships since then, including Container ships, tankers ranging in size from 600 to 1100 feet, car carriers, research ships, even old fashion cargo boom ships. I never found my place in this industry until HMS Global Maritime and the Westpac Express came along. Usually a person may have a once in a lifetime opportunity in their job but, with the Westpac Express, Alakai, Huakai, USNS Guam and the JHSV and LCS seatrials, it seems like everyday is an adventure!
George Baker, Master
