PORTSMOUTH, Va. (May 8, 2015) Capt. Stephen T. Koehler, commanding officer of the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), Capt. G. Robert Aguilar, executive officer, and other crew members paint the ship's starboard anchor with gold paint to indicate that the command has earned the Navy Retention Award. Although Dwight D. Eisenhower earned its gold anchors in February, command leadership painted the anchors only recently to highlight the continued outstanding retention throughout the command over the course of a nearly two-year docking planned incremental availability at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
