According to Capt. Doug Verissimo, New Orleans’ commanding officer, it also gave the crew a chance to train.The crew shook off the dust from the maintenance period and performed exceptionally well.Our newest Sailors were able to learn how the ship operates underway, and the emphasis was on safe and precise evolutions.The Inspection and Readiness Team (IRAT) conducted numerous checks to ensure the ship would be ready for its upcoming INSURV.
