Navy Airman Meosha L. Brunson, daughter of Darlene Brunson of Pembroke, alongside around 5,500 sailors attached to USS George H. W. Bush (CVN 77), recently departed Naples, Italy.
Brunson is a 2006 graduate of Miami Killian Senior High School of Miami, Fla., and joined the Navy in October 2006.
During the visit, sailors supported the local community and also enjoyed historic Italian sites through Morale, Welfare and Recreation-sponsored tours. The tours allowed them to see famous sites such as the Colosseum, Michelangelo’s David and the leaning tower of Pisa.
Several sailors dedicated liberty time to volunteer at the Missionary Sisters of Charity, a local men’s shelter and soup kitchen that provides free meals and housing.
In addition to Naples, the ship has visited Portsmouth, England, and Cartagena, Spain, since entering the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility. This is the USS George H.W. Bush’s maiden deployment.
