That is a possibility, Ward.  But as I understand it, Abe sailors can volunteer to take short tours of duty on other ships leaving out of Norfolk or Newport News.  Correct me if I'm wrong about this, anyone...

quite possible....RCOH is a 3-4 year I recall from my son's carrier (Theodore Roosevelt) it involves about 25 million man hours of work!!!!

My son recently finished prototype and has been assigned to the Abe. He's been told that, because of the RCOH, he may not go to sea in his remaining 3+ year first enlistment.

hello to all my Airman i stationed at the shipyard in which she is be rebuilt as a crew member. This is our first holiday season without him and we are so incredibly proud of him. We are from a state that would have never been without Abraham Lincoln so this duty is meaningful in many ways

Merry Christmas to every one. This is our first Christmas without our sailor. Kind of sad, but we sure are proud of him and all of the others sailors

Hello all,

My daughter just received here orders assigning her to the Abe. She will be completing A school early next year. Being from PA, it will be nice to be able to visit her in Norfolk.

USS Abraham Lincoln Promotes New Leaders...

Story Number: NNS131205-19Release Date: 12/5/2013 11:38:00 PM

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (NNS) -- The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) promoted 213 of its Sailors at a frocking ceremony Dec. 5 at Huntington Hall Athletic Field.

Twenty-five Sailors advanced to petty officer first class, 78 to petty officer second class and 110 to petty officer third class. Slightly more E3s were promoted to petty officer third class than the spring 2013 cycle.

Lincoln's Educational Services Officer, Chief Warrant Officer 2 Telly Myles, reflected on the results.

"Advancement plays a key role toward retention and a service member's decision to make the Navy a career," said Myles. "When highly trained Sailors advance in pay grade, they tend to re-enlist, which helps the Navy's goals."

Newly frocked Aviation Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class Kenneth Gilliam, is excited with being frocked after three tries.

"It feels amazing to be advancing my career," said Gilliam. "Now that I made it, I look forward to being stationed overseas."

Lincoln's Commanding Officer, Capt. Karl O. Thomas, presented each newly frocked Sailor with an authorization letter and words of encouragement.

"I enjoy rewarding hard work and I am looking forward to diffusing new, energetic leaders into our command," said Thomas. "I hope this motivates all of the Sailors that didn't advance this cycle, to study more and work hard during this difficult RCOH period."

Lincoln is currently undergoing a refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) at Newport News Shipbuilding, a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries.

Lincoln is the fifth ship of the Nimitz-class to undergo a RCOH, a major life-cycle milestone. Once RCOH is complete, Lincoln will be one of the most modern and technologically advanced Nimitz-class aircraft carriers in the fleet and will continue to be a vital part of our national defense.
