USS WASP (LHD-1) 2004 deployment movie
I was active duty Navy 2001-2007, and spent five years aboard the USS WASP (LHD-1). I was a third class Fire Controlman (FC3), working on the NATO SeaSparrow Surface Missile System.
From February to October 2004 we were deployed to the Persian Gulf in support of "Operation Enduring Freedom." Being an amateur videographer I tried to capture as much of the experience as possible. This wasn't meant to be a serious documentary, but I think it does give you a good idea of what life was like for me during those seven months.
