PACIFIC OCEAN (Aug. 11, 2018) Actor Woody Harrelson speaks with Sailors aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). The Sailors here are showing Harrelson how they navigate the nearly 90,000-ton ship that supports the 4.5 acre floating flight deck and more than 70 advanced naval aircraft. Harrelson was underway on the ship to observe flight and ship operations, and was generous with his time to interact with Sailors. John C. Stennis is underway conducting routine operations in the U.S. 3rd Fleet area of operations. Harrelson portrays Adm. Chester Nimitz, the U.S. Pacific Fleet commander in "Midway," a movie opening Veteran's Day weekend. "Midway" depicts how Navy teams like those on John C. Stennis worked together in 1942, just as they do today. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Joseph Miller/Released)
