Nick Dimm (pictured left) is Continental Tide’s Employee of the Month for the month of September. His efforts overhauling the flight deck doors, flushing the portside capstan, and refurbishing the crane hydraulics, ram assemblies, and boom extension chains were instrumental in the on-time completion of all tasking onboard USS Kearsarge (LHD-3).
Continental Tide employees working around the globe took part in raising awareness of breast cancer by wearing pink Continental Tide T-shirts to work. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States only behind skin cancer. Although this disease primarily affects women (1 in every 8), statistics show that the lifetime risk for men to develop breast cancer is 1 in 1,000. A group of employees at Continental Tide’s Virginia Beach office took time to show off the Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirts while an AIT department crew working at a base in Japan pose in front of the USS Blue Ridge LCC-19. Join us and show your support! Let’s spread awareness!!
