PHS grad forms Navy coalition

U.S. Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Aaron W. Russell and fellow Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) formed a Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) committee.

CSADD is a peer-to-peer mentoring program geared toward assisting Sailors in making positive decisions in all areas of their lives. The program 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 has different topics they want to focus on every month in an effort to raise awareness about these issues. Topics range from addressing problems such as sexual assault to everyday issues such as car buying.

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

Russell is a 2006 graduate of Plainfield High School who joined the Navy in August 2006. He is the son of Michael Russell of Plainfield.
