Culinary Specialist 3rd Class Jashaun Donaldson, from Anderson, South Carolina, assigned to USS Gerald R. Ford's (CVN 78) supply department, thaws turkeys on Ford's aft mess deck May 15, 2020. Ford is the first aircraft carrier equipped with conglomerate galleys, their unique design and state-of-the-art equipment make serving a crew of more than 4,000 personnel more efficient than Nimitz-class carriers. Ford is undergoing an 18 month phase of operations known as Post-Delivery Test and Trials, and serving as the only carrier qualification asset regularly available on the East Coast this year.
