Clearwater military news: Sailors' mentoring program

Navy Chief Petty Officer Christopher M. Royael, son of Claudia and Art Royael of Clearwater, and fellow sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) formed a Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions committee.

CSADD, a peer-to-peer mentoring program geared toward assisting sailors in making positive decisions in all areas of their lives, was originally created for those in ROTC, JROTC and similar programs. However, it quickly spread throughout the Navy and is now a resource for all sailors.

The purpose of the program is peer mentorship. The goals of its members are to get a group of sailors who, through networking and discussion, can create ways to inform and inspire others to make better decisions, and to equip all hands with the tools they need to make those decisions.

The coalition will focus on different topics every month.

CSADD recently held its first meeting and plans to meet at least once per month throughout the rest of the ship's deployment.

Royael is a 1997 graduate of Clearwater High and joined the Navy in August 2000.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The Rays took their team photo before Wednesday night's game against the Angels. One player who should have been there was not: pitcher Blake Snell.
