Flint, Mich. native, Boatswain’s Mate 2nd Class Jason Wyatt, bid farewell to the officers and crew after completing a successful 3-year tour aboard USS Constitution, Nov. 5.
Duty aboard USS Constitution is one of the Navy’s special programs, and all prospective crewmembers must meet a high standard of sustained excellence and interview to be selected for the assignment.
“Take care of each other,” said Wyatt.
Wyatt has served in the Navy for eight years and USS Constitution is his third duty station. His previous commands included USS George Washington (CVN-73) and USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71).
Wyatt is a 2006 graduate of Grand Blanc High School. USS Constitution, is the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, and played a crucial role in the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812, actively defending sea lanes from 1797 to 1855
