Stennis Sailors Read to their Loved Ones

USS JOHN C. STENNS, At Sea (NNS) — Sailors aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) are taking advantage of an opportunity to connect with friends and family while forward deployed. The United Through Reading (UTR) program offers Sailors a chance to record videos reading books to send home to their loved ones.

The recording sessions are 30 minutes and Sailors can schedule appointments on a sign-up sheet located outside the ship’s museum every Sunday. Sailors are limited to one recording session per day but can sign up for as many sessions as they want throughout the month. The books read during the recording session are mailed home along with the DVD for the families to enjoy. More than 100 Stennis Sailors sign up each month to record videos to stay connected to their families and friends back home.
