ATLANTIC OCEAN - Paterson’s Dycquan Dookie is currently serving as a Culinary Specialist in the U.S. Navy.

Stationed on the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS San Jacinto (CG 56), Dookie, a Seaman Recruit, is seen in this photo helping to prepare eggs for a Sunday brunch during a Surface Warfare Advanced Tactical Training (SWATT) exercise with other U.S. Navy warships held earlier this month.

Surface warships assigned to the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group are participating in the exercise in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Virginia, to maintain readiness, proficiency and lethality.
