Pictures of our Family and Friends.

In September of 2007, my father and I took a trip to Hawaii to meet my little brother, Lt. Commander Joseph Smotherman (Pilot, Shooter & V4 Division Officer) at Pearl Harbor.  Jody had been on deployment for 6 months in the Persian Gulf aboard the USS Nimitz and was on his return voyage to San Diego.  We had the unique opportunity to travel with him aboard the ship on their last leg home from Pearl Harbor to San Diego.  The journey lasted for 6 days and the Captain & crew made the journey a once in a lifetime memory for my father and I, as well as the other participants in this "Tiger Cruise".  The days were filled with everything from BBQ's to Air & Sea Power demonstrations where live ammunition was dropped from F-18's just off the side of the carrier! These are a few of the many photos we took on board the USS Nimitz.
