Rynkowski Returns From Deployment

Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Jeffrey T. Rynkowski, a 1994 graduate of Beach Channel High School, and the 200 sailors aboard the USS Simpson, Mayport, Florida, recently returned from a two-week community relations deployment to Castries, St. Lucia in the Caribbean.

The deployment focused on Theater Security Cooperation, designed to build and strengthen affective alliances and friendships, develop partner nation capabilities and preserve the ability to respond to safeguard US security.

During the deployment, sailors delivered Project Handclasp donations to the local Salvation Army and Red Cross including sewing machines, medical supplies and toys. Additionally, the sailors helped refurbish the Gordon and Walcott Memorial Methodist School, painting and repairing plumbing while also giving students a tour aboard the USS Simpson. Rynkowski joined the Navy in July 1996.
