An admiral approaches

The TV studio is never this crowded.  Media is currently on full alert, waiting for the new commander of Carrier Strike Group 11 to arrive.  He is Rear Admiral Gumataotao, and he is kind of a big deal.  Think of our carrier as a school.   If the captain of the Nimitz is the principal, the Strike Group Commander is the superintendent.  He's in charge of the carrier and all the ships that escort it.

UPDATE: The admiral just left the studio.  He talked with us for about 20 minutes, giving us props for all the great work media's done.  I'd describe him as motivated, forward thinking, and personable.  Also, I don't think it's a coincidence that people in high positions have great people skills.
