Cody Forsythe, right, from Newport Beach, Calif., explains safety procedures to Midshipman 1st Class Tom Joyce, from Kansas City, Kan., before his first flight in an F/A-18F Super Hornet attached to the “Diamondbacks” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 102, on the flight deck of the U.S. Navy’s only forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), June 17, 2022. Ronald Reagan hosted five U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen for their summer cruise allowing them to experience day to day life aboard an aircraft carrier in the fleet.
