Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Lakesa T. White, a 2000 graduate of Lakeside High School, recently conducted a missile exercise during a routine, scheduled deployment while assigned to the aircraft carrier USS George Washington, homeported in Norfolk, Va.
Launching from White's ship, aircraft from Carrier Air Wing 7 fired 17 live missiles onto a range over the Arabian Sea in two separate waves.
White is one of more than 7,600 Sailors and Marines aboard the ships of the USS George Washington Carrier Strike Group, which deployed to carry out America's ongoing operations in the war on terrorism.
