WACO, Texas (April 4, 2018) Students attending University High School experience the Navy's virtual reality asset, the "Nimitz", at the school during Waco Navy Week. The experience consisted of students going through a series of exercises, starting with a briefing, before participating in a virtual high-speed water extraction of a Navy SEAL team pinned down under enemy fire. Navy Week brings Sailors from different units across the United States to conduct focused outreach events with members of the community in conjunction with the Heart of Texas Airshow featuring the Navy's flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels, who are celebrating their 72nd anniversary of flying excellence. The Nimitz is named after Fleet Adm. Chester Nimitz, a native of Fredericksburg, Texas, who commanded the U.S. Pacific Fleet during WWII. (U.S. Navy photo by Burrell Parmer/Released)
