NORFOLK, Va. - 39 Sailors from Reactor Department stationed aboard Pre-Commissioning Unit John F. Kennedy reenlisted on the deck of the Battle ship Wisconsin for a combined 232 years, advancing 38 Sailors to Petty Officer Second Class.

The Sailors received a combined selective reenlistment bonus totaling $2,388,272.51 under the Selective Reenlistment Bonuses and Selective Training and Reenlistment programs.
