Sailors and Marines gathered together to celebrate Easter during a Roman Catholic service held aboard Bonhomme Richard. Having the opportunity to observe one's faith, even at sea, is a testament to the openness and diversity of the U.S. Navy.

As late as 1992, women were not authorized to serve on warships, and now they make up approximately 17 percent of Bonhomme Richard’s crew. As members of every department onboard, women are integral in sustaining the ship’s warfighting readiness and carry out the Navy’s mission. Like, tag, share or even shout out your favorite Sailor… who happens to be a woman!
