U.S. Navy/James E. Foehl

Retail Specialist 2nd Class Rashad Menefee, assigned to the USS Philippine Sea (CG 58), sent holiday greetings to his family in Newnan via video from the Arabian Gulf. The Philippine Sea is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations, which supports naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region. The Central Region connects the Mediterranean and Pacific through the Western Indian Ocean and three critical chokepoints to the free flow of global commerce.
