Chedomir Cakic Deploys With Navy

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Chedomir Cakic, son of Elena and Dobrica Cakic of Lake Worth, along with fellow sailors aboard the guided missile destroyer USS Farragut (DDG 99), recently departed for a scheduled deployment in support of maritime security operations and build on maritime partnerships.

The sailors are deploying to the 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility as part of an ongoing rotation of U.S. forces supporting maritime security operations in international waters around the globe. The Carrier Strike Group’s flagship USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), with the seven squadrons of Carrier Air Wing 7 embarked, departed Naval Station Norfolk, along with the guided missile destroyers USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG 81) and USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109).

Carrier Strike Group Eight has spent the past few months successfully completing a series of complex training events and certifications to prepare for the deployment.
