NORFOLK (NNS) -- USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) Sailors attended a Norfolk Admirals hockey game at the Norfolk Scope Arena, Jan. 13.

More than 250 Truman Sailors watched the Admirals take on the Connecticut Whales as part of "Truman Night Out," which was coordinated through the command's Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) division.

Before the game, Truman's color guard presented the national ensign and Yeoman 3rd Class (SW/AW) Marshondra Miller sang the national anthem.

Capt. Dee L. Mewbourne, Truman's commanding officer, dropped the first puck.

"I think the event went amazingly well," said Meghan McLean, USS Harry S. Truman MWR officer. "Every chance we get to do a ship-wide activity with our friends and family is a fun event."

Command Master Chief Loran M. Bather echoed McLean's sentiment.

"Our Sailors have been working hard while Truman has been in the shipyard," said Bather. "Anytime we get a chance to settle down and get together as a command, it truly improves morale."

The Admirals defeated the Whales 3-1.

MWR is offering another Truman Night Out Jan. 23, when the Old Dominion University Monarchs basketball team competes against the Northeastern Huskies during a 7 p.m. game.

Truman is undergoing a docking planned incremental availability (DPIA) at Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY) to conduct maintenance and refurbish shipboard systems. Truman is expected to return to the fleet this summer.
