Battleship Stars Make Holiday Phone Calls to Deployed Sailors

Posted by andre with No Comments

Actors from the upcoming feature film “Battleship” spoke to USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) and embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 17 Sailors during a phone call to the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier Dec. 16.

Two fans aboard Vinson exchanged greetings and asked Brooklyn Decker and Taylor Kitsch a number of questions throughout the call.

Aviation Ordnanceman 3rd Class (AW) Rodel D. Mosuela, a Chantilly, Va. native, assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 81, asked Decker about her experience working with major Hollywood stars and active duty service members on the set of “Battleship”.

Decker said it was like seeing two worlds, military and civilian combined.

“All the things that you do are very admirable,” she said as she addressed Mosuela’s sacrifice of leaving his family behind to defend his country. “Thank you for what you do.”

Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class (SW) Megan L. Catellier, an Indianapolis native assigned to Vinson’s Media Department, spoke with Kitsch about her experiences living on a ship and being on station after last year’s devastating earthquake in Haiti.

“I got the chance to be on the ground and take photos,” she said explaining her role as a Navy photographer. “I’ve learned to appreciate what I do.”

Both Decker and Kitsch sent their greetings to the crew by thanking them for their service and wishing each a happy holiday.
