Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing Eleven (CPRW-11) Sailors participated in the Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax) Shoreline Clean up alongside other tenant commands July 26.

This opportunity gave Sailors the ability to work together, promoting teamwork between commands. It was also a great chance to give back to both the base and the greater Jacksonville community by keeping the St. Johns River clean.

After receiving a safety brief reminding everyone to be careful and stay hydrated, the Sailors were assigned to comb the rocky shore along the flight line looking for beached debris and trash.

Assisting in the cleanup was AWOC Michael Ducker who remarked, “It was a great turnout with 56 ‘Griffins’ participating. It was a nice opportunity to take pride in our base and leave a good impression on the City of Jacksonville.”

Keeping the base and the shoreline clean is everyone’s responsibility and Griffins are keen to lead the way in fostering a caring attitude and promoting stewardship of our community and the environment.
