    ROCKPORT, Texas – (April 16, 2019) Lt. Cmdr. Luis Sanchez (center) of Harlingen, Texas, the Senior Naval Science instructor assigned to the Rockport-Fulton High School, oversees a student’s registration at America’s Navy’s Virtual Reality Experience, the NIMITZ. After its activation during the Wings Over South Texas Air Show held aboard Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, April 13 – 14, the Nimitz was available to come to the school before transiting east to Victoria, Texas. The experience started with registration, a mission briefing, donning on rumble packs and virtual reality headsets, and immersion into the mission. The mission consisted of a virtual high-speed water extraction of a Navy SEAL team pinned down under enemy fire. Once the students completed the mission, they were graded on how they responded to five separate mission commands. Recruiters assigned to Navy Recruiting Station (NRS) Portland were at the NIMITZ to spread Navy awareness and to pique students’ interest about America’s Navy. The NIMITZ is named after Fleet Adm. Chester Nimitz, a native of Fredericksburg, Texas, who commanded the U.S. Pacific Fleet during WWII. Navy Recruiting District San Antonio’s area of responsibility includes more than 30 Navy Recruiting Stations and Navy Officer Recruiting Stations spread throughout 144,000 square miles of Central and South Texas territory.
